  • The Old Town

    Amarante Things to Do

    Amarante's old town is what attracts most visitors. A beautiful granite bridge dating back some 300 years, the massive roundish walls of the monastery, lots of old houses and a lively plaza with some nice shops and cafes - all of this make it very inviting. Amarante is said to have been founded by São Gonçalo in the 13th century. The monastery...

  • Cars! Everywhere!

    Amarante Warnings and Dangers

    As mentioned in my intro, the beauty of Amarante's old town is somehow spoiled by the masses of cars that cruise through the narrow streets in search of some space to park. It's incredible that in contrast to all other places we've seen in Portugal Amarante simply doesn't have a car park big enough to cope with the amount of tourists visiting the...

Vila Nova de Gaia

  • Wine, wine, wine

    Vila Nova de Gaia Things to Do

    Gaia is not a touristy destination, but no visit to Porto would make sense without crossing the bridge.They should call it "Gaia wine", instead of "Port wine". All the great producers line the river in Gaia waterfront. Which one should you choose? Well, they all offer from the common Port to the excellent one, so that's up to you,and if you are...

  • D. Luis Bridge

    Vila Nova de Gaia Things to Do

    Does it belong to Porto or Gaia? I mean: what is "the other side of the river"?Until I decide it, I better mention the bridge in both pages. If you read about it in Porto's page just skip this. Or... go back there, and find how it looks more complex after a careful and detailed wine tasting. And... don't drive back. Porto, in the other side, is at...

    Vila do Conde Things to Do

    Originally formed by 999 arches, with about 4 km, it is the second longest aqueduct in Portugal. The artificial canal was built between 1705 and 1714 from the Santa Clara Convent to the east (Terroso, Póvoa de Varzim), with the aim of bringing water to the monastery fountain, through its arches.

Póvoa de Varzim

    Póvoa de Varzim Things to Do

    We were adviced by a german couple to visit a wine-shop in Povoa De Varzim, and since we were curios about the famous port-wine we weren't late to go there.It's situated on the road on the way into the the center of the town, coming from north, and when we first got inside we were a bit disappointed. Just around 100 bottles, and among them a lot of...

  • Bus

    Póvoa de Varzim Transportation

    There went local buses from Santo Andrý, where our hotel was, to Povoa De Varzim, and from there to Porto. The price were low, but the trip took quite long time. So we decided it was worth to pay a taxi instead. But if youýre alone, and have enough time, havenýt problem traveling with a warm bus etc etc, you should take the bus. Price Povoa De...

  • Port wine tasting

    Pinhão Things to Do

    While you're in the Douro Valley, you have to at least go to a vineyard, and taste the wine that this valley is so famous for. You can pretty much just go to any of them without an appointment, provided they are open. As you drive along the main road by the river, you'll see sign directing you to the various vineyards in the area. Just be careful...
