A good spot to stop
14 August 2007 | Povoa
We explored the town of Povoa and decided that it was a good place to stop to over-winter as we had run out of holiday time. The marina staff were helpful, it was cheap and there were plenty of little shops and a small supermarket in easy walking distance of the marina. With cheap flights from nearby Porto airport and a train service to get you there it was the perfect option. The only downside was the noise. on the way in to the marina we were startled by the sounds of gun shots which we later learnt were fired on the hour to celebrate the feast of the Assumption.
