There is little tourism here but lots of nature, space and simplicity. It is a land of warm, open-hearted people, where visitors can enjoy the pleasures of markets, beautiful sandy beaches and it’s rich gastronomy. Portugal’s cuisine is as rich and varied as its landscape. The Minho has a very traditional and pure kitchen. It is the home of salted cod, oven roasted goat and cow’s meat from a special local breed. This is also the region of the ‘Vinho Verde’ wine. Unique in the world, the wines are slightly acid, light and fresh, with medium alcohol content and with good digestive properties. They are easy to drink wines, fruity and sparkling.
