Once a mighty riverport, the ancient fortress town of Caminha is almost surrounded by water. Proudly situated opposite Spain at the mouth of the enchanting River Minho, it has been inhabited since Celtic and Roman times.
What to see: Begun in the late 15th century, Caminha's Gothic parish church, Igreja Matriz, has an impressive inlaid ceiling of panels carved in Moorish style. In the main square there are 15th-century battlemented buildings.
Nearby: Foz do Minho (Mouth of the Minho) lies just 5 km south-west of Caminha. From here, local fishermen are on hand to take tourists to the ruined island fortress of ?nsua Fort, which houses a former Franciscan convent and church. 12 km north-east, the small walled town of Vila Nova de Cerveira has several narrow streets lined with mansions and a 16th century castle.
My page on Caminha is not very big. But a bit is better than nothing. Hope it gives a small idea of what you expect of the city.
