TOURIST ROUTE «HISTORY AND FAITH ITINERARIES»

Póvoa de Varzim
Description
Tourist Route «History and Faith Itineraries»
In the interior parishes of the municipality, Rates and Balasar, the influence of traditions from the Minho region is clear, since with this region is very close by. Although there are some industries, particularly textiles, this is mainly a rural area. The cultivation of flax means this is the raw material of choice for producing the most typical local craft-works.
On this route, be brave and lose yourself amidst the astonishing greenness of the landscape, contrasting with the earthy tones of the schist which abounds in this region, live the History, listen to the stories and legends and take inspiration from this intensely religious environment.
