Plenty of services in town, including the excellent Adega Tipica restaurant. The Solar da Rainha is 600m beyond the rivver crossing at the far end of town.

Notice

Where the camino arrives at the main road into Ansião it DOES NOT follow the road.

Instead, it turns left onto a side trail and bypasses the road traffic. The turn off is poorly marked but can be identified by the very small capilla that abuts the road.

Fiesta

The Ascension is celebrated on May 25th.  

The Road

Leave town across the Ponte da Cal, over the Rio Nabão (whose river-like qualities vary with the season).

The camino takes you through the outskirts of Ansião; passing some suburbs and a large soccer field. The signs are visible all the way to Bate Agua.

Nice and big café, many sweets and great tea. Nice stop if its rainy.

Beautiful town with lots of cafes and a few supermarkets. Visit the tourism centre and ask for Claudia. She can help with anything you need in the city.
