Our original trip, together with the companions of Castilla y León Destination did not contemplate passing the border to Portugal, it was a trip to the north of the province of Zamora, and if you also visit the Bierzo, in León, from Puebla de Sanabria. But after a few days of bad weather, we decided to change course on the fly and enter Portugal, visiting the Montesinho Natural Park.

In the food there was representation of the local sweets with “economic”, “supplicas” and “asleep”. Then there was presentation of sweets from other regions and even presentation of pastry that we call “own manufacture.” Some vegetables some for planting. For me I avenged myself to eat of the good bread and roasted chorizo, a piece of good “bísaro”, round and delicious peas, all of the best in the D. Roberto restaurant in Gimonde. It has Housing Tourism and an appetizing regional products store, with the best sausages that are made there.

What to see in Bragança?

Bragança is the capital of the region of Trás-os-Montes, in the northeast of Portugal. This remote and mountainous region offers unique scenery, historic villages, natural landscapes and a rich gastronomy. Bragança is situated at the end of the Natural Park of Montesinho – one of the wildest forest areas in Europe, with a huge diversity of fauna and flora.

The inhabitants have a traditional way of life, especially in smaller cities and towns, such as Miranda do Douro, Mogadouro, Torre de Moncorvo and Freixo de Espada à Cinta. The daily life has not undergone many changes for centuries and these isolated villages have a very own rustic beauty. The region is especially beautiful in the spring when a white blanket of almond blossoms covers the valleys. The nearby Mirandela is known for its meats and alheiras, but you can find local specialties a bit throughout the region.
