Get in

There are two separate bus routes from Viana do Castelo and there is a case for taking a different one to come back.


The long bridge over the Lima. It is said that the Romans thought this was the mythical river Lethe because of its beauty and were afraid of losing their memories if they were to cross it! Their undaunted general swam across alone and caled to each of his men by name to prove he had retained his memory and then they all crossed. Be that as it may, it's a fine bridge.
