Viseu

Viseu, a happy city

Viseu is a Portuguese city which belongs to the Central region of Portugal and, with its population of 68,000, it is the second largest city in the region, after Coimbra. It is also the capital of the district of Viseu, the county of the same name, home to 100,000 inhabitants.

The centre of Viseu is about 90 km from Pinhão, which is about an hour and 15 minute drive.

What to visit?

This city is definitely worth a visit, mainly because of its delicious cuisine, invigorating thermal baths, fine museums and its magnificent Cathedral (Sé).

Sé de Viseu – Catedral

The outline of the Sé’s towers (built between the 12th and 17th Centuries) is a prominent image for those visiting the city of Viseu.

The Cathedral was built on the spot where a primitive temple once lay, from the Suebi Visigothic era (between the 5th and 7th Centuries), whose structure was recently revealed following archeological excavations.

Its attributes, namely its mannerist façade and dome, ribbed in the form of a cross, make this cathedral a mandatory stop for those visiting the city and those who appreciate sacred art.
