Marés Seawater Pool

The Leça da Palmeira beach has one of the largest stretches of sand to be found in the North of Portugal. It has been a popular destination since the very beginning of the 20th century when the English community living in Oporto adopted it as their favourite beach.

Here there is the salt-water swimming pool, the Piscina das Marés. Wonderfully integrated into its surroundings, this is another Álvaro Siza Vieira project built between 1961 and 1966.
