Interesting history, combination of various styles. Try to collect some info before you visit, much more interesting than the bombastic stairs thing

Amazing architecture. Lamego is an adorable town to visit - make sure you go during the week if you want to do a little shopping - everything is closed on Sundays - but its all good and fun
