We drove from the lovely little town of the Ponte de Lima along the N203 into the Parc National de Peneda y Geres. Driving across the dam at Lindoso and on into the park with it's glorious views of valleys and peaks is memorable indeed. The hillsides were clad in purple heather and golden broom.
The Peneda Hotel was an inviting, comfortable oasis, nestling beside the pilgrimage church. We spent a tranquil afternoon in the area, beside the stream and a very pleasurable evening in the restaurant with great food, wine and service.
The hotel used to be a pilgrims hostel and has been well converted into a comfortable hotel with big windows, easily opened for comfort.
We had a great nights' sleep and enjoyed a good healthy breakfast the rest of the drive out of the park the following day.
