Vila do Conde is a quaint seaside town in the Oporto District of Portugal. It is linked to the city of Povoa de Varzim and forms an urban area with the parishes of Azurare and Arvore.
The town makes for a relaxing tourist destination because it has been left literally untouched by visitors, although the town administration is fast opening up to the benefits of tourism.
The temperatures in Vil do Conde usually hover around 3°C–4°C in winter and rise to around 27°C in the summer. Rainfall averages between 60–500 mm, with quite a bit of precipitation in the months between October and February.
The population of the town is about 26,000 people. Vila do Conde is famed for its lace making history; the Lace Museum at Rua de Sao Bento and the Lace-making school serve as testimony to the fact.
