She changes is a very interesting sculpture. It was commissioned from a woman artist, and it is freeflowing. Did not get to see at night, unfortunately..

It is a really nice focal point, it looks impressive, but disappointingly it wasn't lit up when we went past in the evenings. I was hoping for some nice photos.

passed this sight during a windy day so have not seen it lit at night. IT still was a sight, making shapes and billowing on a roundabout at the far end of the bus stop 500.

Upon first seeing this giant "She Changes" sculpture of a fishing net, (or is it a sea anemone plant?) you wonder how in the world is this thing being held up? Apparently it's a monument to fishermen and the sea. All I know is that...More

This is a monument to the fisherman and the sea which are part of the culture of Matosinhos. Try visit it at the night has the view is much more interesting.

Saw this during the day and it is supposed to be something to see at night. The guide we had explained the idea behind the Anemone, represents the sea and the fisherman. perhaps an honorarium. We did not stop to look at it because it...More

it looks more like a giant fishing net. It is in front of the beach. It is a nice and beautful beach. At night it looks a lot nicer

It may well look awesome at night but in the daytime it is quite dull and tacky, and frankly not even worth a photograph!

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
