She Changes, known locally as "A Anemona" (The Anemone) is a beautiful and imposing sculpture with international awards designed by the famous american artist Janet Echelman. Located near the main beach of Porto (Matosinhos), it is considered by many one of the most beautiful sculptures built in Europe in recent years. It is mainly during the night we can enjoy its entire splendor.

This net was made beautifully, either during the day or at night, its always a pleasure to watch the special movement of it. Dont miss it, while you look at the beautiful Matosinhos beach

The sculpture is huge and is visible from afar, drawing the inquisitive nearer, Although called the anemone, it also looks like a huge fishing net. Not sure I'd make the journey specifically to see this, but a nice addition to the waterfront to look at...More
