Plenty of services in town, but not quite as many accommodation options as you might expect. The albergue and Celeste are not centrally located. To get to them head straight up the hill from the end of the bridge passing the Parque Alta Vila along the way. The Parque is the best place in town for a rest.
Like Coimbra, you do not need to go into town and can instead turn left at the end of the bridge. The neighboring town is Paredes, which is residential. The going is uphill, and the residential areas continue beyond the railway crossing.
There is a brief industrial stretch before crossing a busy road into Mourisca.
