PÓVOA DE VARZIM – AN ATLANTIC CITY

Póvoa de Varzim
Description
Sprawled along the borders of the Atlantic, Póvoa de Varzim is a “city of leisure”, both for its spaces and facilities and for its wonderful location. It is a city that is open to the world, with a long history as a hostess and traveller essential aspects in the “art” of getting to know different peoples.
Perpetuating the tradition of the fishing community which turned the street into its “living room”, the need to get out of the house, to socialise, is intrinsic to the Poveiro [a person from this region], thus bringing movement and life to the streets, cafes and bars of the city - meeting and socialising points for people of all ages. This natural liveliness is boosted by the presence of street artists and different attractions throughout the year.
Entertainment and recreation in the city also comes in other forms, especially the religious celebrations, where the richness of the processions deserves a special mention. The most noteworthy processions are those which take place in the Semana Santa (Holy Week), and the S. Pedro, Sra. da Assunção and Sra. das Dores processions. In addition there is a series of signifcant cultural, gastronomic and sporting events, such as the International Music Festival, the gathering of Iberian writers – “Correntes D’Escritas” -, the “Sabores Poveiros” (Flavours of the Póvoa Region) campaign…
Suited to the demands and needs of people of all ages and backgrounds, this is a modern city, and one that charms and pleases everyone who comes to visit it or who lives here… it’s good to be here!
