// Gondomar is tourism

The Município de Gondomar (Municipality of Gondomar) is situated in the Área Metropolitana do Porto (Porto Metropolitan Area), has an area of 130,7 Km² and benefits from a stretch of the rio Douro (River Douro) of approximately 37 Km. This important resource makes it a strong tourism potential for Nature Tourism and Nautical Tourism. In this context, river beaches stand out because of their unique landscapes, which attract a lot of people during the bathing season.

The Douro also influences the gastronomy of the Municipality, as its most emblematic products are the shad and the lamprey. The very rich cultural heritage and the ancient traditions of shaping filigrana (filigree) and talha (woodcarving) also stand out.

Tourism, because of its transverseness, is considered an important factor for the economic boost of the Municipality, and Gondomar is a multifaceted destination and provides its visitors with authentic and different experiences.
