Povoa de Varzim

Povoa de Varzim is a Portuguese city in the Northern Region and sub-region of Greater Porto. It lies between the Cavado and Ave rivers, or, from a wider perspective, halfway between the Minho and Douro rivers on the northern coast of Portugal- the Costa Verde.


The best place to watch people go by, to stroll or simply relax, is ‘Passeio Alegre’, a beach pavement and square with dozens of entertainment areas and outdoor cafes. Here, you’ll find the casino, nightclubs, trendy pubs, cafes and bars. Nearby is ‘Rua da Junqueira’, a traditional shopping street. While in this busy small city, it is also one of the safest and trendiest cities in the metro areas in Portugal.
