  • By train to Guimaraes

    Guimarães Transportation

    I went to Guimaraes by train from Porto. Trains to Guimaraes leave from both Campanha and Sao Bento Station in Porto. There is an almost hourly service between the cities by suburban trains. Some of the connections require a change of trains in e.g. Lousado or Ermesinde.The train trip takes about 75 minutes and a single ticket sets you back only...

    Barcelos Things to Do

    Galo de Barcelos, often used as a symbol of Portugal.The town's famous symbol is a rooster, in Portuguese called o galo de Barcelos ("the Rooster of Barcelos"). One of the many versions of this legend goes that a rich man threw a big party. When the party was over, the rich man noticed that his sterling cutlery was stolen by a guest. He accused a...

    Barcelos Things to Do

    This temple or Chapel of Our Lady of the Bridge was built in 1328. It was later renovated in the mid-seventeenth century and again in 1865-66. So, today you can observe the product of reconstruction made in second half of XIX-th century. The original building was simple and was located at a lower elevation than at present time.

  • Portela do Homem

    Gerez Things to Do

    Once upon a time there was a frontier here, with a couple of policemen saluting the few people venturing in a so remote place. It is not a particularly nice area of the park, but it is one of the few points allowing to pass to Spain, to verify that me wild remains across the border, with the first village (Lobios) more than 10Km distant.

    by solopes Updated Jan 1, 2014

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a nightmare to be served.

    Many people used dinner brake in the dancing competition, and the restaurant, though big, was not professionally prepared to that crowd.

    Very late, the food came, and I must confess that it was well prepared, big doses, good wine, reasonable price.

    It deserves a second visit, out of peak time.

  • Roadside Picnic

    Geraz do Minho Restaurants

    By 1:30 in the afternoon, we had wound our way up into the Serra da Cabreira on a pretty little highway that had virtually no traffic. Pulling off that road onto an even smaller side road, we found a beautiful little spot under the trees to have our makeshift lunch. We had not planned ahead properly on Saturday, so here it was a Sunday and we found...

  • Rental Car Freedom

    Geraz do Minho Transportation

    Our small Budget rental car, a Fiat Punto, served us well on our 10-day driving excursion around Portugal. It was just big enough to hold our two suitcases, small enough to negotiate narrow village streets and fast enough to handle the super-highways at 130 kph (80 mph) with ease. Having a standard transmission was no problem because I have one in...
