Portugal and Spain Leg 6/ Chave, Portugal

We picked Chave,  Portugal at random from a map to break up the drive from the Douro to Santiago and are we glad we did.  Only 10km away from Spain, Chave lies on the upper stretch of the river Tâmega. It is a spa town steeped in history, the most important example of which is the fantastically maintained Roman Bridge. This feat of engineering was completed at the end of the 1st century and all twelve arches are still visible.

Great Host, Singer, and Restaurateur 

 All you can eat and more. 18 courses, wine. 
At the end we were asked to pay "what you think it was worth"
