Check out the great Street Art Works in town. Some of the best works, are right there by the beach. Like the immense work by Pantónio just across the old fortress, the stencil art of Daniel Eime or the vintage Portuguese tile inspired murals by Add Fuel.
Try you luck in the Casino
The city’s casino is among the largest on the Iberian Peninsula, and also the oldest, although you wouldn’t know it from the building’s sleek glass facade.
It goes back to the 19th century, as you’ll see from the opulent Beaux-Arts interiors.
Even if you’re not a high roller it’s worth an evening just for the decoration and to admire the stuccowork and frescos while you ponder your hand at the poker table.
There are a handful of bars and a first-rate restaurant, and before you come you could check the programme to see if the entertainment meets your fancy.
Figueira da Foz is one of the cities with the most tradition of surfing in Portugal with waves for all levels.The dedicated community of local surfers invite everyone to experience the waves of Figueira.
