About the neighbourhood
During the summer months there are many festivals throughout the North of Portugal. In July/August there is usually an equine event in the purpose built outdoor arena in Ponte de Lima. <>Entrance is free to this show. Show jumping and dressage are among the events. During the summer the Flower Festival is held and is a great attraction. Most of the towns in the area have a Tourismo office with details of all the local events. It is advisable to call into these offices as local events may alter on a weekly basis and many of the receptionists speak English.
Getting around
