This will be our last night in Portugal. Today we drove west through the mountains to a Pousada in the mountains not far from Porto where we will turn in our car.
We stopped in the town of Chaves for a break. Chaves has been a key strategically important town for centuries. Their Roman-era bridge was completed in AD 104.
The mountain valleys that we drove through had several dams and hydroelectric plants.
Lampreys are a delicacy that are only available in the spring here. Our appetizer was marinated lamprey.
For desert we had a sampling of many deserts.
