town named Chaves, actually quite modern overall as most towns in Portugal are,
but you know it’s very old because of its 14-arch Roman bridge over the Tamega
River. The town has a cute medieval center with a castle watch tower too.
Heading eastward towards Breganca I took a detour into a
remote area in the Parque Natural de Montesinho near the Spanish border. It’s a

... and we enjoyed a nice lunch together in Villa Vella. It is a very nice hotel. The owner was sweet and gave us maps and souvenir pens. Everyone in this village was very nice and we spoke with some men who had worked in Germany. Next stop was o Pereiro. Again, really nice men helped me get a drink at the fountain and fill my water. It is very beautiful here but the walk is very hard. I ...
