About the neighbourhood
A passage through the country discovering some secrets of the historical and cultural heritage with many Celtic sites, medieval castles, gothic and baroque cathedrals is a must. The medieval towns of Viana do Castelo and Ponte de Lima are 10-25km away which are famous for locally produced pottery hand crafts and unique cobble stoned historical centres. Its Gotic cathedral (1404 a.d.) and the Neo-Romanic Cathedral of Stª Luzia (Sec. XIX) worth a visit. Oporto is 35 minutes driving to explore the wine lodges and the magnificent vineyards of the river Douro.
