Travel Tips for Vila do Conde

VILA DO CONDE

by northsea

"Charming little town on the Atlantic coast"

One late afternoon we drove about 25km west from Guimaraes to Vila do Conde. From Porto it must be appr. 20km north.
This town is full of historical buildings, and the best known is the Convent of Santa Clara, dating from 1704, and the 16th century Church. Parts of the old aqueduct wich originaly had 999 arches supporting the water channel who feded the water to the fontain at the monastry.
There is a wide beach facing the Atlantic ocean and nearby there is a good selection of resaurants specialising in the local fish dishes.
The shops also sell the local hand made lace which is traditionally in the shape of seashells.
The old part of Vila do Conde has a bustling Friday market and an interesting medieval quarter.
The traditional fishing is still carried out at the port, and you might find a wooden fishing boat being using the skills and techniques that have been handed down for generations.

"Fisherman statue"

This statue was erected in honour of the local fishermen.

"A gift of a fisherman"

We started talking to a fisherman and his family, when we were about to leave, he wanted and insisted to give us this dried fish. I don't believe it was "bacalhau" but can't remember the name.

Vila do Conde

by orlandom

27 km north of Oporto lies Vila do Conde, a delightful seaside town dominated by the enormous Convent of Santa Clara, built on a hill above the River Ave.
The town enjoyed its boom years as a ship-building centre during Portugal’s Age of Discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Today, with its lively Friday market and atmospheric medieval quarter, the old part remains an active fishing port, while the golden beaches of Guia and Forno are popular with families during the summer months.
What to see. Founded in 1318 and completely rebuilt in 1778, the Convent of Santa Clara contains the tombs of the nunnery’s founders, Dom Afonso Sanches (son of King Dinis) and his wife Dona Teresa Martins. The fountain in the cloister used to be fed by a 5-kilometre-long aqueduct, built in the 18th century. Much of it still remains, including some of the original 999 arches (note: the builders at that time thought that 1,000 arches would have offended God).
