Monumento Tragedia no Mar, Matosinhos

4.4
From the earliest times to the utmost state-of-the-art projects, Matosinhos offers, unforgettably, unique travel and experiences to shape up your life.

Matosinhos captivates by what it has to offer and, above all, for what makes it happen.

One has to consider its history, heritage and tradition, and its future planning, never forgetting, of course, the unique flavor of sardines on bread.

It is culture, art; it’s a design district, leisure, technology, a sign of modern times.

But Matosinhos is much more than this, it is street life, night scene, animation, light, color and sound, it is life and is, after all, where everything happens.

Matosinhos is, inevitably, sea, beach, surfing, diving and snorkeling, sport and movement, offering a wide and unique coastline where the green gets lost in the blue.

Matosinhos is also faith, pilgrimage and tradition, not only as a waypoint on the Camino de Santiago, but also in the feasts and festivals, with special emphasis on the “Senhor de Matosinhos” festivities, whose main church of the city, the Igreja do Bom Jesus worthy of a mandatory visit.

Proudly assuming itself as the dining-room area of the region, you cannot miss the sardines, the fresh shellfish and the stories of the people who got lost at sea, to bring you it at your table.

Additionally, Matosinhos is pen, sketch ... it is work! From the vast architectural heritage, there are many of Álvaro Siza's testimony here, his homeland, emphasizing the Casa de Chá da Boa Nova, a luxury dream like restaurant and the Piscina das Marés, a saltwater pool built between the maritime landscapes, both classified as "National Monuments".

Whichever way you choose to come by, whether on foot, by car, bike, bus, boat or by plane ...

When you fall in love with Matosinhos, it will be forever.

  • The truth is that Matosinho has little to do with it and these sculptures may be the most interesting thing. You are located at the tourist information point, next to the cruise port.

  • The memorial to the shipwreck reveals a completely different "tragedy" when the perspective changes: looking at the women and children from the sea side in the accusatory faces, behind it the abomination of urban architectural madness opens up in all gigantic. Urban planning can be so ugly. That's also for crying.
