Castle Blanco, Belmont
our last visit before we meet Mira’s sister in the northern city of Chaves. This time, it’s to a town that has the most beautiful castle in Portugal, according to our nephew and travel agent, Patrick. We enter a tower and walk along part of the castle walls. Beautiful views. Then, Lunch in a taberna overlooking the surrounding area.
Finally, off to Chaves!
