This glamorous seaside resort’s harbor has a 125-berth marina where swish yachts share space with colorful fishing boats.

Its nave is filled with gilded woodwork, while the walls are decorated with numerous 17th-century paintings by Josefa d’Obidos. Visit Museu dos Condes de Castro Guimaraes, where you’ll see exhibits of ancient ceramics, silver ewers, samovars, and rare embroidered shawls.
