Walk on the Marginal
After redevelopment a few years ago, the coastal road of Matosinhos has given new life to the beach area. Along the wide promenade, passersby walk, skate, cycle or buy ice cream in small shops. Go for a walk on a hot summer’s day or sip refreshments on a terrace while watching the sunset.
Picnic at City Park
