On January 20th, 1848, King D. Maria II raised the town of Viana da Foz do Lima to the category of city, naming it Viana do Castelo, in recognition of the courage and loyalty of the garrison of the Castle of Santiago da Barra.
In 2021, Viana do Castelo will celebrate its 173rd anniversary by holding a City Day Celebration Session on January 20th, at 18:00, at the Municipal Theatre of Sá de Miranda.
