Portugal's "Natural Parks" are most like the national parks in the U.S. The Alvao to our mind is much nicer and more "natural" than Portugal's sole national park, the Peneda-Geres. The views here are incredible. At the main viewpoint of the huge and distant Fisgas de Ermelo Waterfalls, hiking on to the rocks for a view of the area may induce vertigo as the vistas are so huge and the dropoff so severe. Wow! Later we drove to a parking area near the falls and hiked down to the rapidly flowing river above the falls. My wife jumped into a relatively safe pool - freezing! It was a beautiful spot to sit and watch for a while.

The Casa de Penedo (literally 'rock house') is quite extraordinary, a tiny but lived-in house built between large boulders, with the boulders forming part of the structure. It is located close to the top of a treeless hill in a particularly windswept and cold-looking spot, its nearest neighbours being a row of giant wind turbines. The house is privately owned and surrounded by barbed-wire fences, so you need to admire from a distance. The place is very elevated, so the views of the district are superb. Note that the house is also very difficult to find as there is just no signposting.

We had a wonderful 4 days in Amarante staying at the Casa da Calcada Relais & Chateau. We had a magnificent view of the bridge and church opposite from our hotel window. The bridge is beautifully floodlit at night and pleasant to stroll across during the day despite the traffic. The town is not at all touristy and has a most relaxing atmosphere. We're only keen to go there again.

Beautiful old monastery with some lovely Gardens surrounding it. We didn't go inside and we don't feel like we missed out.

A Romanesque Castle overlooking the ancient land of Basto. It stands out from the landscape as a rocky fortress, with highlight to its keep, the square turret and the cistern. Below, the old town of Basto (currently known as village of Castelo) - with its pillory, audience house and apothecary (pharmacy) - reminds us of the period when this was a busy place due to the road that connected the Sousa to the Tâmega. This castle is part of the Route of the Romanesque.
The castle dominates the tiny village of Castello and is an easy stroll from its main street. All uphill, but easy. It enjoys breathtaking 360-degree rural views, haze-free when we visited, and with the air as clean and crisp as you could like. The castle consists of a wall and a keep and had recently undergone some renovation, though what there is is still quite basic. I had been here a few years ago and it is much safer now. A bit off the tourist map - we had the place to ourselves. And it is free.

This is quite a large Museum, really more an art gallery specialising in temporary Exhibitions of Contemporary art and a large permanent collection of Portuguese art from 1860 to present day. Not to everyone's taste but at only 1 euro to get in, would repay an hour of your time.
