Had a good laugh with him as we waited for our little mini Peloton to catch up. the whole group had a beautiful ride coming down a valley to ride along the Douro river to our winery hotel for the night.

No, we did not walk up them, but we did walk down them to the center of town after visiting the church via bus. The church is also somewhat infamous in that there is a statue of the virgin mother was a bare breast, nursing the baby Jesus (the only one in the world?).
