Amarante

Overview

Introduction

Amarante, Portugal, is a relaxing, pretty riverside town set among the vineyards that produce vinho verde, a delightful variety of white (not green) sparkling wine. The city, located 35 mi/55 km south of Porto, has a lovely medieval bridge and monastery that are popular with pilgrims.

If you're visiting on a Saturday evening in June, be sure to catch one of the public parties during the Festas de Sao Goncalo. Just follow the crowds. For a relaxing afternoon, rent a boat and paddle along the sleepy Tamega River.
