Matosinhos Tourist Office: With tourists in mind, in particular those who dock at the passenger terminal, the Municipality invested in a space next to it to promote the city and the region, associating itself with Turismo do Porto e Norte de Portugal (TPNP). The Matosinhos Tourist Office was the 45th to open, out of a total of 68 throughout the northern region, and became part of the Porto and Northern Portugal Regional Tourist Information Network. The Matosinhos space has a tourist service area, an exhibition area for products from the Municipality and the entire region, two interactive tables with information, two video walls where films of various themes such as heritage or restoration are projected. One of the videowalls will project images to the outside of the Matosinhos Interactive Store. Leça da Palmeira Tourist Office: Casa da Praia, on the corner between Rua Hintze Ribeiro and Rua António Nobre, was restored by the municipality and turned into a Tourist Office. Although the restoration project maintains the original layout of this former bathing equipment warehouse, the City Council could not fail to enhance it, opening the old gable facing northwest towards the sea, creating a new glazed facade with shading panels. The adaptation of Casa da Praia as a tourist office was due to the initial idea of, due to its location, serving as a support for tourists to consult other works by Arq. Álvaro Siza and obtain information about areas and buildings of interest to visit in this county. With this investment, in addition to the refurbished Matosinhos Tourist Office, the municipality intends to upgrade the level of tourism service, focusing on the quality of spaces and increasing the offer, next to the Marginal de Leça da Palmeira.
