Programme Outline

Ports

Ílhavo is a Portuguese town with a population of around 40 000 people, known for being home of the tallest lighthouse in Portugal and brightly painted houeses called Palheiros. Visit the Maritime Museum of Ílhavo and learn about the history of cod fishing in the area. Go one of the beaches for a lazy day of relaxing or crazy watersports. Visit the Vista Alegre museum of porcelain and the Farol da Barra lighthouse.

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.
