This was a splendid day out, and included (not mentioned in itinerary) a visit to a hilltop Celtic village and Mount Tecla, spectacularly overlooking the mouth of the River Minho. It is a long day, so make sure you have a relaxing morning to follow. Lunch was taken in Portugal and very good, consisting of soup, a baked cod dish topped with beautiful crisp potatoes, a dessert, coffee, water and plenty of wine. There is a little bit of walking to do, and some hilly bits and steps, so may not suite a person of lesser mobility. Scenery was magnificent on the perfectly sunny day I was lucky to have. I was the only English speaking individual on a bus full of Spanish speaking people, who were nice polite folk. One or two had some words of English, so I enjoyed their company at the table for lunch.
