    Pool - Espinho

    With a rough sea, in 1942 someone bult a pool by the sea. Hit and a few times damaged by the sea, it was acquired in 1960 by the municipality, and protected against the waves. Today it safe, it is free, using sea water, though opening only during summer.

    Roundabouts

    by solopes Updated Jan 7, 2014
    Espinho

    The "easy money" pouring from Brussels to local authorities, gave place to a ferocious competition, building and decorating roundabouts. The winner, in quantity is Viseu (with, it seems, more than 500 roundabouts) but concerning decorations it is hard to decide - the diversity is immense, and all depends from the personal taste. Espinho preferred quality instead of quantity.

    I don't know where did the idea come from, but some old houses in Espinho show a few small statues topping their facades. I couldn't read anything about this fading tradition... if it was a real tradition, and not the isolated taste that it seems nowadays.

    Media center

    Espinho is not a "Son of a lesser god", and it had the right to get its white elephants. Media center, is a huge and ugly building in the noble area of the city, and, in my ignorant opinion, it is perfect to play that role.

    Espinho - Portugal

    This one of the most popular beaches in the north of Portugal. Well, the beach is wide, the sand is smooth, the services seem well organized, but... I came from the south, which means... better beaches.

    Not impressed, I must say!

    Espinho

    As you walk inland, the cosmopolitan look is disappearing, and rural images mix with densely built areas. Here and there, a funny and interesting detail, may deserve your attention.

    I think that Espinho has two things to offer - a Casino, and a beach. I don't gamble, I don't swim in frozen waters, what else should I see in Espinho?

    A third option - dancing... and I did!
