Portugal Things to Do: 760 reviews and 1,215 photos

  A shrine on the top of a hill
by Franberu

This wionderfull church is erected on a hill and face the Atlantic Ocean from 2 or 3 kilometers. It is located in the northern part of Portugal between Viseu and Vila Real and very close to Bucao. In Bucao we slept in an old hunting pavillion of a king. Beds with baldaquin and ceilings of twelve feets high.
A garden like I've rarely seen and walls covered with blue and white tiles with a unique style of painting. This was a great stopover!
