Viana do Castelo District

4.6
Churches · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
Encompassing the lush area surrounding the estuary of the Lima River, Viana do Castelo District spreads over such idyllic landscapes that early Roman legions who conquered the area in the first century CE thought they had arrived in heaven. Mistaking Lima for Lethe, the mythical river of forgetfulness, the soldiers refused to cross the water until one of their commanders charged ahead and ordered the troops forward. Today, tourists include this district on their itineraries because of its picturesque countryside and eponymous capital city, packed with historical buildings dating back to the 16th century. A sightseer's paradise, the seaside city delights tourists wishing to enrich their holiday with a little history and culture.
