    Lamego Things to Do

    Leading up to the church which sits on top of the hill is an impressive set of 686 stairs, you can see the view looking down. Just try to imagine how the religious zealots do it on their knees.The last level area or platform before you reach the church is "home" to a beautiful blue tile wall decoration. You might notice, on the closup shot of the...

    Lamego Things to Do

    The central piece of the stairway is the pillar/fountain that stands on the last platform before reaching the church on top of the mountain. The male figures crouching at the bottom still spout water from their mouths although there seems to be some "leaking" around the shoulder area. Some of the motifs seem out of place in a religious site, like...

  • Mini train

    Viseu Transportation

    In main square I saw a small train, obviously for touristic purposes. I didn't use it but found that it works from May to September, with a different traject during the day and by night, at the price of 2 € during the day and half of it in the night.

São Pedro do Sul

  • Manhouce: waterfalls and ancient houses

    São Pedro do Sul Things to Do

    Manhouce is a lovely old town. Full of granite houses and set in a lusty valley it is known by the singing of its women. The village grew because there was an ancient route from Porto to Viseu. It is a very old town and it was once considered the 2nd most typical of Portugal (today it is less characteristical due to progress). Although the town is...

  • Fujaco: a STEEP village

    São Pedro do Sul Things to Do

    Well what can I say of Fujaco. I thought it would be a completely waste of time. But it wasn't. It was actually a very interesting place to go. The village has absolutely nothing. It doesn't have a supermarket, nor a restaurant, a coffee or a gas station, nothing. And it is full of old people and goats everywhere. And then there are this charming...

There are many typical products offered by them in there. The village is known by the place where the dead killed the living. The village didn't had a cemetery so everytime anyone died...

Ervedosa do Douro

    Ervedosa do Douro Warnings and Dangers

    I traveled to Ervedosa do Douro with the owner of the Quinta who did all the driving. These are the little roads you see skirting the vineyards from a distance which in actuality are not meant for other traffic than those people living or working in the area.While we drove I noticed that the owner could sense a car coming while I would not even be...

    Caramulo Things to Do

    The little hamlet of Pedrogão is situated about 5km southwest of Caramulo. The best way to visit this little corner of the world is via the hiking track that goes all around Mount Caramulinho. But of course, there is a road going there as well...The most eerie sight here is a giant rock that is bigger than the house just a few meters away and which...

    Vouzela Things to Do

    Vilarinho is a small town with an old tower that protected this area. All the area is full of this sort of towers such as the one in Cambra or Alcofra. This tower is the most destroyed of the three. A signaling system with fire would protect the region with each tower communicating with the next in case of danger.
