Overall Guide : A nice city to visit for a romantic break or for a bit of culture. The city centre is quite compact and that makes it an ideal place to visit for a couple of days. It has museums, cafes, esplanades... more and quirky shops galore. Outside the centre, there are many monuments wirth having a look, with special mention to Bom Jesus do Monte, Citania de Briteiros (Celtic village) and Mosteiro de Tibaes. It is also located half way between the beach and the lakes of the North, each of which accessible in less than 30 min by car.
Not to be missed Bom Jesus , Se catedral , Theatro de Circo
