HIGH-RISE DISTRICT (Nova Póvoa)
Nova Póvoa district came into being in late 1960s, early 1970s, as extention of the Beach district. Thus, its architecture reflects the ideas of the age, and part of it was built over the sand banks of a dried-up lagoon, that gives the name to its beach "Praia da Lagoa" (Lagoon Beach), shaping a small bay.

Spring in Póvoa de Varzim
country just off the city.

Póvoa Lake


Typical spring flowers that blossom in the thousands in the fields. Used to colour eyes in Easter.


Another typical flower
