Return to the historical center of town and get to know the locals as your guide points out sites of historic, cultural, and gastronomic interest. Take a peek into Viana’s Costume Museum. Check out the Gil Eanes museum. This unique institution used to be a hospital ship but now has been lovingly restored and made open to the public as both a museum and youth hostel.
For lunch, stop at a local restaurant and taste a traditional Portuguese meal. Afterward, treat your palate to a glass of delicious Vinho Verde. This delicious wine is made exclusively in Portugal’s Minho region, and is known for its light and fresh flavor– a must-try for any traveler.
