Several times I passed in Vila Nova da Barquinha, always rushing somewhere else, which means… no time to look around.
Dancing took me there one more time, and this time allowing a couple of hours to walk around.
Of course, I used them!
Just let me organize my pictures and a few tips will come out.
After many passive years, Barquinha is now opening to tourism.
Great part of the riverfront is now occupied by a big (7 acres) park, inaugurated in 2012, with a very attractive look.
Large lawn, good shaded areas, some of them prepared for picnics, ponds and fountains, served by a couple of stalls with esplanade, are a good invitation for summer days.
Spread in the park there are 11 sculptures of contemporary artists.
