    Historic centre

    While wandering around Amarante’s historic centre we came across some traditional shops that are harder to find these days in bigger cities. They are a kind of old fashioned supermarket that sells every kind of product, even birds!!

    On one of these shops (shown on the photo, just after you leave the Monastery square behind) fruit is very tasty and you may buy delicious seasonal products, as is the case of chestnuts in October. Also, it is worth buying here nuts and dried figs.
