Five minutes by car is a new bridge crossing the Minho, to the pretty Portuguese town of Vila Nova de Cerveira.
Cerveira has a 'do not miss' open air market on Saturday.
A few kilometres further on, at Tui, there is a bridge crossing to the old fortress town of Valença, well worth a visit in its own right, maybe on market day, Wednesday.
From either point you can travel in almost any direction with rewarding results.
The Alto Minho is and appears a completely different country to the Spanish Baixo Miño .
