City of Barcelos

Welcome to Barcelos

Around 40 km away from the city of Porto, Barcelos is located in the heart of the Minho region. Bathed by the River Cávado, the Municipality has a population of over 1,000 inhabitants, characterised by many young people and a high level of population growth.

The area boasts countless monuments, an unforgettable landscape and strong traditions. The regional wisdom and flavours are distributed across 89 parishes, encompassing a total area of 379 km2.
While located near major urban centres, Barcelos has managed to maintain its independence in relation to other Municipalities and is ranked 12th nationally in terms of municipalities with the highest number of employees in the manufacturing industry. The principal business sectors are the textile and clothing industries, which employ around 40% of the population.
