V I D E O
Ponte de Lima is located in the southern bank of the Lima, a small river with sources in Spain.
The oldest village in Portugal, it was historically significant as a Roman settlement in the road from Braga to Compostela and Lugo, and the first place in Portugal getting a municipal chart. Every second Monday it holds one of the largest country markets in Portugal. The attractive rural area around has the largest concentration of baroque manors in Portugal (Bertiandos, Brandara, Calheiros and Pomarchao are among the best known). Some provide tourism accommodation.
É caracterizada pela sua arquitectura medieval e pela área envolvente, banhada pelo Rio Lima
