Portuguese tell that Portugal was born in this region. So you are on historical grounds! The village of Barreiros is located a few kilometers from Braga. It is a village in the municipality of Amares. Barreiros borders one of the many rivers in this region, the river Cávado. Barreiros is inhabited by less than 800 people. The facilities are limited, but that is compensated by peace and nature. Of course there is a church, a chapel, a pub, some small local restaurants, a small supermarket, a bakery.

In addition to Braga, we recommend visiting Guimerães, Amares, Ponte de Lima and Porto. The Romans left behind several Roman bridges. There is even a car route around Roman souvenirs.
