Feel closer to nature in the National Park of Peneda-Geres...

Take a trip back in time at the Medieval Fair held at the end of July in Caminha...

Costumes, music, food, dancing, horse shows and theatrical displays - everything goes Medieval in this delightful town for these few days. There are lots of arts and crafts to look at or buy too. This is one of the best festivals in Portugal!

Monçao has several old houses and a spa whose waters are believed to help the aches and pain of rheumatism. They also produce the well-known local Alvarinho wine here, so it's well worth a visit!

The historical centre is mostly pedestrianised and is where most of the best buildings and shops are to be found. Take the elevator up to the Basilica of Santa Luzia which was inspired by the Sacré Coeur in Paris. From the basilica there are spectacular views of the city and the beach.

The winding River Coura meanders down to Caminha and offers many delightful spots for picnicking. In Paredes da Coura there are areas to dive and safe pools for children.

The lovely beach at nearby Caminha, Foz do Minho, sits at the mouth of the Minho River and is sheltered from the offshore breezes by pine woods...

The beach has views over the Celtic hill fort of Santa Tecla on the other side of the river in Spain. If you get peckish, the restaurant on the beach serves up hearty Portuguese fare and the pine trees provide shade for an after lunch doze!
