Great start of the Euro2004
Povoa De Varzim is a lovely little town, 30 kilometers north of Porto, in the very north of Portugal. We spent almost a week in this region during the Euro2004, and had a great time!
The things to see in the town is the casino, quite huge - where you during the football-tournament could see all the games on a big tv-screen.
And, even more important, the beer costs just 1 euro... :)
The beach is also a great place, although we prefered the pool at our hotel outside Povoa. But we went past the beach every evening, and always said; "tomorrow we have to go here".
Needless to say, we never got that far...
