"Amarante a lovely town" Amarante by ncfg

Amarante Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 211 photos

Amarante is a lovely town located from Porto town 56km east. It is set on the banks of the beautiful River Tamega. I just had been there a couple of hours but enough to follow in love with such beauty.

You can admire the beautiful bridge built in 1790, the impressive monastery of São Gonçalo dating back to 1540 and the town’s museum is dedicated to the life and work of locally-born Cubist artist Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso (1887-1918), one of Portugal’s leading 20th-century artists.
Don’t miss!
