Amares, Portugal to Tui, Spain

Before leaving the Pausada de Amares this morning we took a short walk around the grounds of the Pausada which is built in a former monastery.

The trees are loaded with oranges but Duke wants just the right one.

After our walk we finished packing, checked out and headed north to the town of Tui which is in Spain on the Portuguese Spanish border. The border is formed by the Minho River. We are staying in a Parador overlooking the river.

As you know if you follow this blog, Paradors are Spanish hotels in historic buildings or scenic locations. They are owned by the Spanish government. Over the last 6 years Duke and I have stayed in 67 of the 98 Spanish paradors. This Parador in Tui is number 68 for us.

We enjoyed our welcome drinks and played cards

For dinner we went to a nearby restaurant called A Muralla Duke and I shared a meat and fish grill. The staff was very friendly. It was a great meal.
