More about Pousada de Valenca do Minho - Sao Teotonio

The posadas network is fantastic

by Franberu about The Sao Teotonio Posada in Valenca de Minho

This hotel is part of a network that offers very good lodging for a reasonnable price. It is located just beside the Minho River and I noticed that crossing a bridge we were in Spain. With the collegues I went across the bridge to take a beer in Spain using the passport at the custom office in the middle of the bridge. large rooms, very nice view on the minho River and a very good service.

Valenca is a small town in the very north of Portugal right by the spanish border.
It´s a very charming old town with an old fortress and the old city walls still very intact.
The view up there is really nice and strolling around the little streets of Valence is pure joy.
This is also in the region where they make the famous portugese green wine and you can buy it all over the old town, both in cafes and in shops.
I have a been there a couple of times and never seen that many foreign tourists.
It seems to be mostly a town that local portugese and spanish visit for the day, so do like the locals and go to Valenca.

Renting a car is easy and the price was ok

by Franberu

From Lisbon, we took the train to Oporto. This was a good experience and we notice that the rails in Portugal are larger than in other countries of Europe. After our stay in Oporto we have rented a car to complete the tour of the northern part of Portugal and get back to Lisbon. The roads were offering us nice panoramic sights. We have visited Bucao, Vila Real, Valenca do Minho, Viseu, Coimbra, Fatima, Nazaré and a few other interesting spots.

Day Six - Sao Roque (Rubiaes) to Tui

by into-thin-air

Distance 21.1k
Accrued ascent 200m

This is your last days walking in Portugal as you cross the border into Spain at the end of this days walking.
It is a much easier day than the previous one as it is predominantly down hill, Mainly on good paths and minor roads and only a couple of kilometres on a main road as you walk into Valenca.
There are a couple of opportunities for coffee / lunch breaks – All in All a Very Pleasant day !!

A Tale of Two Cities

by Andrew_W_K


Portugal has two major cities - Lisbon and Porto. Each has a vibrancy of its own and each competes for your attention as the major city. Yes Lisbon is the capital and has the edge over Porto for that reason but Porto is much more than a second city. Even it's football club is more successful recently than those of Lisbon. But Lisbon is a wonderful place. There is plenty to see and do and having just spent 6 days there I found somewhere new to explore every day. City highlights: the Baixa full of tourist shops and cafes and a pleasant area to stroll day or night, castello San Jorge overlooking the city is a fantastic old castle with magnificent views, tram number 28 - a small tram thats been going since the 1930's and goes up into the Alfama disctrict, the Santa Justa elevator from the Baixa to the Chiado area is a must as is the funicular Gloria. Also recommended a trip to Cascais just down the coast - a very nice upmarket resort with a promenade that runs all the way to Estoril - walk it and take the train back to Lisbon from Estoril. Also the Belem area with the famous tower and monestory is a good excursion. The thing I enjoyed most though was the oceanarium at the site of Expo 98. The second largest in the world I spent a couple of hours totally fascinated by the wonderful species on view. After that I took the cable car alongside the river. I worked out that while in Lisbon I took 8 different modes of public transport without getting on a boat!! How many places can you do that?


It's been a few years since I was last in Porto but what I remember is a fascinating city built on the steep banks of the Douro river. There is a cathedral not dissimlar to the one in Lisbon and a pleasant city centre. But Porto's biggest attraction is the river and the port lodges that line its left bank. Each lodge has its own Barcos Rabelos (river barge used to bring the port wine down the Douro) moored alongside the quay even though none are used now they are an evocative symbol of times past. Porto's centre is now a World Heritage site and it's easy to see why. The Ribeira is the cities oldest quarter full of steep narrow cobbled alleys it's a joy to explore.


On the border with Spain stands the fortified town of Valenca. Now one of the most pleasant tourist towns on the Iberian peninusla. The town is built on a hill overlooking the river Minho (the natural border with Spain) and surrounded by Napoleonic style fortifications. There has been a fort here since Roman times but it has also been destroyed several times too. The current fort dates from the 17th and 18th centuries. The interior of the fort is now full of tourist shops, cafes and bars where you can relax and unwind.

3 days with car .. can u give me a good idea of route planner of good places to see?

by trolidoli

hi i'm going to be based in Monte Gordo.. so I will probably go to Seville (maybe Valencia)... do you know if this is worthwhile and average time of travel/distance in miles...and safety for a single female driving alone.
I want to see Alberfera..how long will that take me? Can you advise on the coastal route of any worthwhile places of interest for me to stop off and see? thank you in advance for your help x

by Maurizioago

I can't give you any info about that region. Anyway thee are several pages about Algarve on VT. They aren't any special, but worth a look, if only for some suggestions.

Happy travel!

Monte Gordo from Sevilla is about one hour forty five minutes drive about 150 Km, but to Valencia that is crossing nearly half Spain! It will take you about nine hours to drive from Monte Gordo to Valenca just over 800 Km. So forget Valencia this time.
