Matosinhos Seafood Tour
A private Matosinhos seafood tour that’ll redefine 'catch of the day'
Porto’s neighboring city, Matosinhos, is by definition a maritime town. Bordered by the wild waters of the Atlantic ocean, it is home to a colossal port (Porto de Leixões), a magnificent cruise terminal (Terminal de Leixões), some of the nation’s finest artisanal fish canneries, and the region’s busiest fish market (Lota de Matosinhos). This background could only make Matosinhos the perfect place to savor the delicacies of the sea.
In this private Matosinhos seafood tour, we will start by discovering the craftsmanship behind the famed Portuguese canned fish, in the unique setting of an artisanal fish cannery. Not only you’ll be able to witness the factory at work, but afterward, you’ll also get to taste premium canned fish in loco. Next, we’ll enter the lively Matosinhos market, where you’ll be astounded by the pelagic wonders of the fishmonger’s stalls. After a stroll into the backstreets, we’ll emerge in close proximity to the fish auction market. Here, the streets are packed with restaurants that line their barbecue grills at the door, and the aroma of sizzling fish fills the air. It is precisely the location where we’ll experience local specialties in the form of freshly cooked fish and seafood. And in good Portuguese tradition, these will be paired with excellent regional wines. To end the seafood feast in grand fashion, we will relish with some traditional sweets at a popular bakery.
