Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Pretty Town, easy walking distance from Port. The older part of town was much nicer

Large shopping centre right by the Ships port, which was useful for a few gifts, but try the older part of town for the local pottery etc first

This was my favorite stop

There was a shuttle bus, but to be honest we realised after it was only a 15 minute walk - but be aware there are 2 possible places the ship can stop and we were on the closest one to town, so if stopping much nearer the bridge, you will defintely need to get the free shuttle

You MUST find "Manual Taveres" - Its on the main square. This local "deli" shop sells Port, Chorizo's, local cheeses and an array of local sweets. Ricardo who works there used to live in Colchester, Essex so has excellent English. we spent over an hour with him choosing meats, cheeses (v v cheap even for Black Pig )etc and he even gave us a tour of their small wine cellar - was fascinating
