Porto (or Oporto to some) is a must-see for visitors to Portugal, and our main reason for staying in Viseu was that it was fairly close to Porto.

Yesterday Alfonso and I had an open and honest conversation about how we felt, the upcoming journey on the Camino and life thereafter. I ...
Down time today-slept in without an alarm clock. After breakfast we took the complimentary shuttle into the city which is a few miles away.
