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...more
Varzea de Abrunhais, Lamego, 5100-878, Portugal
Good for: Business
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...more
São Pedro do Sul
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...more
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...more
Aldeia da Pena is a small village in the bottom of a mountain. The village is all covered in local stone, has a tourist store and a bar and that is pretty much it. 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...more
Ervedosa do Douro
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...more
Good hiking boots are essential as you will be walking up and down the vineyard hills. Make sure your boots have been tested before arriving as a comfortable pair of shoes will make the best or the worst of your hike.If you are visiting in late spring or summer, bring cool cotton clothing because it can get very warm during hikes - and don't...more

Driving from Villa Nova de Foz Coa to Lamego, we drove through Penedono and Meda. The link here shows a photo from the Morro da Torre itself.http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2570/3743445399_b585168e4f.jpgThe town of Meda was not in the VT database, so I have added it here. The panoramic view from here was fantastic, but sadly my photos were not...more

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...more
Av. Dr. Abel Lacerda , Caramulo, 3475-031 , Portugal
Satisfaction: Very Good
Good for: Solo
Caramulinho is located in the Serra do Caramulo and reaches an altitude of 1074 meters. Don't worry, its base can be reached easily by car and from the end of the road it takes just a few minutes to go up to the peak, all along a well marked and secured trail. Once on the top, the view is just spectacular!!!more
Vouzela has probably one of the most amazing and organized groups of walking trails in Portugal. All the information is in the internet but unfortunately only in portuguese. There are amazing belvederes, beautiful nature, lots of pre historical monuments, churches, rural landscapes, flora, fauna, etc, etc... There are 8 available paths all of them...more
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.more
You thought there were no werewolfs, well maybe there were. At least that is what the legend of Cambra says. Em tempos que já lá vão* In times that are long goneHavia um bicho feroz * There was a fierce beastQue era o terror de então * That was the terror back thenEm noites de lua cheia * In nights of full moonNo meio de uma encruzilhada. * In the...more
