"Wander around the cobbled streets" Sortelha Things to Do Tip by micas_pt

Sortelha Things to Do: 17 reviews and 19 photos


The streets are sometimes steep, but, still, easy to walk around. As typical of Portugal, streets are narrow and cobbled, and houses are small and most of them are only one floor high. Streets are very narrow and while walking around you will come across locals on their daily life, most of them elderly. Also, I noticed that most houses have small courtyards. Locals are friendly and welcoming and when strolling around those streets I often got a smile from them, as I was the only visitor around - all others where on main streets and up the castle walls.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
