Things to do in Vieira do Minho, Portugal

It’s a fantastic setting, full of interest for anyone with a passion for nature, and also boasting a number of sights relating to early human settlement. There are prehistoric monuments here, including dolmen, and, much later, interesting structures such as the Espigueiros of Soajo – large granite warehouses built for storing food. The park would be perfect for walks, with numerous marked trails leading to spectacular features such as the many impressive waterfalls in the park. Alternatively you could also make the short trip from a holiday villa in Vieira do Minho west to the historic city of Braga.

The basement with a bar and winery was a great surprise. A beautifull location (the road to the house is at some parts a challenge). The pool was cold, but refreshing. The owner is very gentle, but only speaks Portugese.

The location and surrounding areas were just beautiful and the park and all the hiking trails were so easy to get to (with a hire car). Fernanda gave us a warm welcome and responded to our queries during our stay. She provides lots of helpful things like towels and a hairdryer to help you stay within Ryanair's luggage restrictions as well as useful information and maps of the local area. The kitchen is very well equipped too. We made full use of the bread man who comes every morning with freshly baked rolls. Thanks Fernanda for a lovely break - we're already hoping to return.
