It is only when you leave the cities that you discover the hidden beauty of a country. Portugal is no different. It’s mountains and valleys are dotted with towns and villages each with their own charm and feel. Cobbled streets. Narrow laneways. The open windows of the houses which interact with life as it passes on the street. Vouzela is such a town. On this five day journey you will experience the delights of rural Portugal.
