Histrical little port town.
Viana Do Castelo used to be one of the most important towns of Portugal back in the old days when Brazil was a portugese colony.
The trade to and from Brazil very much went through Viana Do Castelo and the city prosperd.
When Brazil broke away from Portugal and french pirates started to plunder the ships the town lost importance and is today fairly small.
It´s a very pretty town though and a favorite holiday spots for the portugese and during holidays and weekends, the town is packed.
