Matosinhos is:
Matosinhos is one of the largest cities in the Oporto District.

It is neighbour of Oporto, located in the north of Portugal and in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, on the right side of the Douro River.

Matosinhos is a town of land and sea, of people, landscapes and usages, meeting in a journey through places where tradition and changes seek to understand each other, projecting a modern future, visible in the marks of the contemporary architecture.
