Gorgeous palace near Monção with a rich setting and history that can be appreciated through an inexpensive guided tour. The place is known for its alvarinho white wine/vinho verde, and you won’t regret it. It’s probably one of the best whites I’ve ever tasted. Should’ve...More

A wonderful stop on the road out of Monção. Our guide was absolutely charming and told the fascinating story of the palace (schoolboy Portuguese needed). The theatre is the best bit.
