    Marvão Off The Beaten Path

    Downhill, a small village called Portagem is developing, taking advantage of tourism. Those who visit Marvão or those who only pass by the border, have there a good place for a stop, even for a meal or simply for some rest. We visited Marvão but, to lunch, we opted to descend and to stop in Portagem, that we had only seen in a glimpse in the way...

    Marvão Things to Do

    There are two ways to appreciate Marvão - one of them entering the castle, enjoying its details, and the wide sights across border, showing that Portugal and Spain are only conventional designations for the same landscape. The other one is from distance with the castle topping the ridge, as a sentinel guarding the hills, where "progress" is the...

    Elvas Shopping

    There are many traditional stores around Elvas. I found this one particularly interesting. I am not sure exactly what it is but is filled with local products organized, or should I say desorganized, in a very particular way. Wines, for instance

    Elvas Things to Do

    "Garrison Border Town of Elvas and its Fortifications." That is the way UNESCO lists the amazing and completely impressive fortress walls of Elvas. I stumbled up the walls in my guidebook when i was preparing for a driving holiday of Portugal. The book fell open to a small map of what I thought was a large castle. Then I realised it was not a...

  • How to pay Car Toll

    Portugal Transportation

    How do you pay the toll on Portugal's highways, when there is no toll booth and no person to accept your payment? This happened to us as we were driving from Salamanca enroute to Fatima. We had no toll pass and didn't see any place where we could get one and all the tolls on the highway were unmanned. After passing around 4 toll reading posts, we...

  • Nest way to get around town

    Portugal Transportation

    Even though Lisbon has buses, trains or you can even rent a car, the best way to get around is by taxi. Taxis are plentiful and comparatively cheap. It was especially helpful to take a taxi to Castelo de Sao Jorge (St George's Castle) through the city of Alfama. Be sure that the taxi meter is working before you get in though.

    Ponte de Sor Warnings and Dangers

    I decided to write about my hometown because I think that it is one of the most pacific sities of the world. Ponte de Sor is a very safe place where you can walk alone day and night. You only have to be careful about driving with alcohol, police are everywhere at night controlling the routes. So, I invite you to visit this beautiful city.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maybe Campo Maior has interesting points besides its festivities, but, surrounded by so much color, who gets time and space to search for anything else? Only going there in another occasion. But its so far...

    Each four years the streets get decorated with coloured paper flowers. In Alentejo it doesn't rain much, and the decoration uses to be safe.

    Beginning of August 2015 will be the time, otherwise you must return in 2019. Be prepared to full hotels all around, in Portugal and Spain.

    Alegrete Things to Do

    Beautiful and typical for small villages also Alegrete has some nice paths in the back of the gardens. You can see them when getting out of the castleo on the back side via the iron stairs (see photo3). If you are here the right time, there might be very nice flowers like during my visit.
