Fodor's Review

This pousada is on the highest point of Valença's old fortification. The view is superb, with the Rio Minho beneath you and Spain before you on the horizon. Guest rooms are comfortable and many have balconies overlooking the river. The restaurant's core menu is based on Minho's dishes, and rojões à moda do Minho (roasted pork) is one of the specialties. Free parking is available but outside the grounds. Note that the fort is very crowded on weekends when Spanish day-trippers pack the narrow streets, hunting for bargains in the local linen shops.
