"Oh salty sea, how much of your salt, are tears of Portugal!" in Portuguese Sea by Fernando Pessoa
Viana do Castelo, Vila do Conde, Aveiro and Ílhavo are all seaside cities, their urban evolution can be seen by the Vauban style fortifications built in the 17th century, by the fishermen's houses and by the best offer of grilled fish in the world.
More recently the seaside has been urbanely requalified with cultural centres design by renowned architects and ecological routes with fluvial and dunar landscapes.
