  • Parque Aquatico

    Amarante Things to Do

    Sorry this was a complete ripp off.Costs 17 € for an adult and 8,5 € for a kid up to 11 years old for a water theme park... well, there was (not so clean) water ....3 different slides (okay, they all had about 4 lanes) and a few pools for very small kids, for small kids, older kids and regular people... but that is about all you can say about this...

  • Worth every dime!

    Amarante Restaurants

    Traditional Portuguese cuisine with an ultra modern twist is how I'd ultimately describe this gem of a one star Michelin restaurant located in the five star Hotel Casa da Calçada in Amarante, Portugal. It's really not as intimidating, nor as expensive as it sounds. The building is situated along the Tâmega River and we sat at a table overlooking...

    Vila Nova de Gaia Restaurants

    In my first lunch in Gaia someone recommended us this restaurant, a little "out of the beaten path" but close to the place where I needed to go.It was a very good suggestion: The restaurant is large, with a modern but discreet decoration, combining well space with intimacy, without the noise, usual in the big Portuguese restaurants.The staff was...

  • 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...

    Originally formed by 999 arches, with about 4 km, it is the second longest aqueduct in Portugal.

    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...

    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...

  • Railway station and river

    Pinhão Things to Do

    The best ways to travel around the region is by train, or by boat (I went up to Pocinho by train and back down by kayak). When in Pinhao, check out the train station, and its tiles panels. http://youtube.com/watch?v=b6hDoEk2bZE

  • 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...

  • Contrasts

    Gondomar Favorites

    It's easy to understand how Gondomar grew in recent days. If not in size, or population, at least improving and modernizing its resources. It's possible to see in town contrast between the images of a modern metropolis, and the signs of the small, almost rural old city.Which one is the most accurate image? Which one is the real Gondomar? Maybe...

  • Municipal Library

    Gondomar Things to Do

    "Think big" was the rule for Portuguese politicians, while investing some other's money in their show-off. The invoice is coming now!The small city of Gondomar is a good example, with a large herd of white elephants. One of the biggest must be this huge library, built in 2005, with, I guess, a separated room for each reader.

    Gondomar Things to Do

    Gondomar was always known as the goldsmiths' city. With a special technique to produce gold and silver lace, and a few typical designs, they conquered a great reputation all over the country and abroad. I visited Gondomar for the first time for a meeting in the goldsmiths' training center, and could see the careful investment done developing their...
