Programme Outline

Ports

Ilhavo is a portuguese town with a population of around 40 000 people. The nickname of Ilhavo is “the city of the lamp” because one of the most important relics of the church (an oil lamp) was stolen in front of everybody and was never found. The port was well-known for its cod fishing.

A Coruña is a port town in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse that has been in operation for 1.800 years! The town itself is an affluent commercial and tourism hub, with plenty of things to see and do. Visit the popular beaches, explore the city centre, or sample some of the many cultural activities. The Aquarium Finisterrae lets you explore the marine life of the region. But if you prefer your fish on a plate, A Coruña’s restaurants can help you out.
