The gastronomy of this parish has a special glow because many of the fish dishes that you can appreciate in its restaurants are fruit of the local work.

Porto et bonus
Pour les Québécois que nous sommes, nous avons été ravis par cette maison! Vieux style européen : plafonds très hauts, longues portes et fenêtres, superbe escalier... Idéale pour un couple ou pour quatre personnes qui s'entendent bien! Gens très sympas. Vue sur le Douro, facile d'aller à Porto, soit en bus (no 14), soit à pied. Une belle rencontre entre l'ancien et le moderne. On goûte vraiment à la vie du village avec ses habitants, les vendeuses de sardines, le lavage du linge au lavoir commun... Vers l'estuaire, les plages sont superbes et l'Atlantique déchaîné. Chaudement recommandé.
