  • The towers of São Paulo and Cadeia Velha are the only remains of the 14th-century walls of Ponte de Lima. Imposing towers with a square base, one of which was a prison as the name suggests and is currently home to the tourist center. Around the city, making sure you can also notice stretches of ancient fortifications, walls or towers integrated into newer buildings, which give an idea of how was the city. Beautiful facilities.

  • Crowned by Merlons, the São Paulo Tower dating from the 14th century. In the face to the river there is a beautiful, tiled panel depicting the legend of Cabração. You can also read the records of floods of the river Lima over the ages.

  • The Tower has housed the tourist office. Besides being greeted by a super nice person and professional, there are always exhibitions we have access to a free and stay abreast of some more of the culture of Ponte de Lima.

  • Very good Salmon. Very nice staff. Beautiful place at sunset.
  • Good and fresh food. Not expensive.
  • I always love coming here,if it is for taps a light meal or Dinner, the staffis kind and helpful.
  • Great selection of food, including their version of tapas and drinks. Coffee is always good and very reasonably priced. The view is great, which looks across the river Lima and the medieval/roman bridge.
  • This place is an opportunity to relax at end of day and get a taste of local vinho verde. Chances are, you will probably end up cheering up with some hikers going on Compostelle. The food here appear of very good quality, at a slightly premium price.
