Albergue pinheiro’s is not to be missed! Not the most modern facilities but the host Carlos is fabulous and makes an experience out of getting your credential stamped. We had dinner at restaurante O Brás which is another experience not to be missed. Most amazing attentive service and food. Such a good experience in this town!!
