Espinho

The city of Espinho (in Portuguese, Câmara Municipal de Espinho) is located on the Atlantic coast on the North of Portugal. Its main activities are fishery, manufacturing industries and tourism. The municipality has a reputed beach resort well known by its withe-sand beaches.

For many centuries fishing was the main economic activity in the region and only in the twentieth century started to lose its importance to manufacturing and tourism.

The municipality has launched several projects to promote the economic valorisation of the sea coast and its related activities.

The city council promotes several cultural and sports events, which aim to boost the economy of the region, through the development of the tourism “cluster” and also to promote the economic growth and creation of local employment. It has as its mission the valorisation of the endogenous resources of the territory, namely at the natural resources level, taking advantage of the sea and extensive coastline, as well as its cultural heritage.
