After reading some of the previous reviews about the amount of tourists, I think that when we showed up at 5PM, it was a great move. When we got there, people were filing out, and we didn't have to fight the crowds at all. Of course, this meant that we only had about an hour of daylight, but it was enough time to visit. We walked through the streets for awhile and all of the shops were still open. At sunset we climbed up onto the castle wall surrounding the village and the sunset made a great background for the village. It was a very quaint town and worth a visit, especially if you are driving between Lisbon and Porto.
