Caminha is a municipality in the north-west of Portugal, 21 km north from Viana do Castelo, located in the district of Viana do Castelo.

Once a mighty riverport, the ancient fortress town of Caminha is almost surrounded by water. Proudly situated opposite Spain at the mouth of the enchanting River Minho, it has been inhabited since Celtic and Roman times. Caminha is subdivided into 20 parishes, among them Vila Praia de Âncora, Moledo, and Vilar de Mouros. The latter is well-known for the oldest rock festival in Portugal.

Caminha is located 2 km from the Atlantic Ocean, on the southern side of the Minho estuary, where this river is met by the smaller and meandering Coura. Here the Minho reaches its widest point (about 2 km) and marks the border between Portugal and Spain. The highly scenic area, with the wide estuary marked by low-tide sandbars, a pastoral and green rural landscape, and pine forests on the slopes of the granitic mountains is increasingly popular for second homes and as a summer resort. A weekly market is held every Wednesday. Work from local coppersmiths and lacemakers can be found around town.
