... what a good value travel destination Portugal is. My
room cost me 25 Euros and was in a nice modern hotel. For dinner I had the
local specialty, Posta da Vitella (veal steak), as part of a three course meal
with wine for 15 Euros.
Except for the gorge cut by the Douro River and smaller
gorges of its tributaries, the central and eastern parts of Tras-Os-Montes

So if the council, main roads people can't decide how far it is, well how is a pilgrim following mud ...
