Caminha

Caminha is a small port town located on the River Minho, towards the north of the Costa Verde. Historically a town of industrial importance and known for its exports, the town is now simply a pretty market town steeped in history and character. The main square retains several 15th and 16th century buildings as well as some delightful cafés and restaurants with tables and chairs outside on the cobbled streets. From Caminha, there are a number of great sandy beaches within easy reach; including the blue flag beaches of Modelo and Vila Praia do Ancora.
