    The highest point in town has a recent chapel, surrounded by a cool park.

    It seems to be the first serious attempt to embellish a laborious and uncharacteristic town

São João da Madeira Restaurants

    For the lovers of Brazilian grill (I am!) a few kilometers out of town there's this restaurant. Nice service following the "Rodizio" style, except that there's no self-service side dishes, but they bring to table all that you need.

    A good meal, but I was not allowed to see the bill!

São João da Madeira Local Customs

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a bit of a surprise for us. One day, in the middle of the week, suddently this whole town started a huge party. Right outside our hotel...
    It was some kind of festival, who travelled around in the area, trying to make the small towns live up a bit, where they had live-radio, live-music and entertainers.
    This night the party got even bigger since Portugal beat Spain in the Euro2004, so it was really huge!
    For us too... Since it was impossible to sleep we decided to go out and join the party. Which we did... As you can see... :)

    My friend Johannes and me.
