"Mt Pilar" Paços de Ferreira by TinKan

Paços de Ferreira Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 5 photos

The town of Paços de Ferreira is known throughout Portugal and throughout the rest of Europe as the furniture capitol of Europe. There are about 2000 furniture-manufacturing places here and each manufacture has some sort of shop to sell their wares.

The town has some good restaurants that cover every type of food from traditional Portuguese to Tai and Italian. There are no hotels that I could find but they are two good pensions that are cheap and clean.

There is a motorcycle ace and some hiking tournaments that are held in the hills around the town each year as well as one of the big Portuguese road rallies.

We spent many days working here at the radar site in the hills above the town at a place called Pilar.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cheap, Quiet, Good nightlife
  • Cons:A long way from Porto
  • In a nutshell:A cool little place to hunt for the things you want.
