    A strategic photo op
    The region north of Braga is just beautiful. I'm envious of those who live here. The weather is ideal, the streets are clean and free of homeless people, shopping is abundant, and cost of living is attractive. The iconic fountain in the center of this quaint town is a photo op. With the surrounding shops and multi-storied buildings, we felt we needed to include this scene in our film library.

    Σημείο αναφοράς
    Πρόκειται για την κεντρική πλατεία της Ponte de Lima. Ευρύχωρη, καλοσυντηρημένη, πεντακάθαρη, αποτελεί σημείο αναφοράς για τους κατοίκους της πόλης, αλλά και για τους επισκέπτες της. Σημαντικό το γεγονός ότι δεν κυκλοφορούν αυτοκίνητα, καθώς είναι αφιερωμένη για αποκλειστική χρήση στους πεζούς. Αποπνέει έναν αέρα ηρεμίας και μεσαιωνικότητας, καθώς περιβάλλεται από πολλά όμορφα παλαιά κτήρια και προσφέρει προνομιακή θέα του ποταμού Lima. Αποτελεί ευκαιρία χαλάρωσης, βόλτας, παιδικών παιχνιδιών, φωτογράφησης πόλης, ποταμού και γέφυρας, καθώς επίσης συνάντησης και συζήτησης στα καφέ και φαγάδικα που βρίσκονται τριγύρω.

    O centro da Vila que sempre preferiu, somente ser Vila
    Espaço digno e rodeado de motivos, para ocupar um dia ou mais, a visitar a mais antiga Vila, que nunca pretendeu passar a cidade. Desta praça chega-se a tudo o que interessa, cafés, restaurantes, monumentos civis e religiosos, e durante todo o ano. Vá até Ponte de Lima, e leve tempo, para lá ficar encantado

This is a lovely, romantic square with a great view. Perfect for a stroll at night and a quick drink. However, it only scratches the surface of that Ponte di Lima has to offer! Make sure you venture into the town and check the many other sites and things to do, including lovely parcs, picknick sites and cafes!

At the end of the Roman bridge, it has several coffee shops, restaurants and a little fountain.
Nice place to relax a bit after a walk in the city

This square is quite lovely, at least to my taste. There is a huge fountain that beautifies this whole place. Behind the fountain are several pubs and restaurants, where people enjoy the sunshine and good food.

On the square was also a very interesting tree. It is gnarled and looks ancient. It too brings some character into the mix.

Facing the fountain we see the Ponte de Lima Bridge in all its beauty.

I enjoyed this square, especially the gnarled tree and the beautiful fountain

Would not mind to come back. What a beautiful place. Decor, architecture, atmosphere. Quiet, more like a plaza, wide open to the public.

Surrounded by plenty of inviting restaurants and cafes, this square is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. It is located on the southern part of town, just steps from the medieval stone bridge. Be sure to stop and admire the Chafariz, the beautiful stone fountain (circa 1603) located in the center of the square.

Such a clean ambence and such a lot of care for detail in the restoration of traditional buildings! The most picturesque villages I've ever seen anywhere.

O Largo de Camões is for the most of the local people of Ponte de Lima the most Noble Place to visit in the city.
The “Largo” has being built when they took down the city wall, and called after after the poet Luis Camões, in the year 1880.
It is the “Visiting-card” of Ponte de Lima, and is also the place of the famous fountain, who has being erected in the 16th/17th Century.
Is located close to the Bridge.
Very nice piece of art, and worth the visit.
