A surprisingly wonderful town with a ton of history. A very traditional Portuguese town. Has a relaxed vibe. We walked everywhere. Beautiful narrow cobblestone streets. Visited the local museum, castle, church and town square.

I do not like it to put you on a false leg with my answer on your question, so as we live in Portugal I would say that some of them could be “eventually” open on Sunday, but I am not sure, this because I also passed there on a visit.

Sincere greetings from Portugal.
