"Welcome to VILA REAL DE STO. ANTONIO & MONTE GORDO" Vila Real de Santo António by Leipzig

Vila Real de Santo António Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 127 photos

Most of the 14,000 inhabitants of Vila Real Sto. António are living either on the tourist industry, fishing, or trading across the river with their Spanish neighbors. The town offers tourists a small collection of churches, narrow streets and shady places.

The nearby Monte Gordo was an old fishermen village. Today it is a community of hotels and restaurants, offering tourists kilometers of sea washed beach lined with a pine forest. Still today you can see some fishermen on the coast.
