The relationship with the beach and the ocean couldn't have been better, all the buildings (swimming pools, changing rooms, restaurant, etc.) are very subtle, but at the same time stand out in the landscape as the eye travels the Gables, the curves the edges of swimming pools. Unique experience.show original
2016年9月末に行きました。メトロでsenhor de matosinhos まで行き、目の前のバス停から507のバスでOliveira lessa で降り、海沿いを歩いて行くとあります。誰も泳いでいませんでした。（時期が遅かったよう）I went to the end of the 9/2016. Go by Metro to the senhor de matosinhos in front of bus stop off on Oliveira for lessa 507 bus, walking by the sea. Who does not swim. (The times as slow)show original
Piscina maravilhosa sobre a água do oceano. Para uma tarde bem passada, numa experiência única. De evitar fins de semana se quiser realmente aproveitar a visita pois está sempre muito cheioThe pool water from the ocean. For an afternoon well spent, in a unique experience. Avoid weekends if you want to really take advantage of the visit because it is always too crowdedshow original
When it's neither too cold or too windy, and the sun is shining, this is the place to go for a swim. Designed on the edge of the ocean by a local architect, these sea water pools make up for a very pleasant experience. The water is usually much warmer than at the regular beach, given the pools' dimensions, making them more prone to sun heating.
Developed and built between 1961 and 1966, this building became one of the most interesting buildings to visit in Porto since Álvaro Siza designed it. As still a young architect, Siza was appointed to design a new swimming pool at Leça da Palmeira right between the rocks and the sea. He spent months drawing and feeling the environment so he could design a building that fitted perfectly along the shore. It's architecture made from the site and for the site. All the materials are raw. Concrete, wood and steel are all processed with traditional techniques of constructing.
Alvaro Siza at his best. Way too crowded though. Premises need refurbishment.
Filipe Fernandes Miranda
A one time experience. Too expensive. The place has also a private beach surrounded by a mesh
Diogo Ribeiro Machado
Too crowdy in summer
