Viana. Old town and walls

Viana stands on a hill and faces the horizon serenely. It is no longer on the watch after a busy historical past as a defensive fortress against Castile and a frequent residence of monarchs.

Nowadays the gateways of its walls are open to give access to numerous interesting stately homes, mansions, and churches which reflect its splendour between the 16th and 18th centuries.
