Straddling the Rio Tâmega, the two halves of Amarante are joined by a narrow 18th-century bridge that stretches above the tree-shaded banks. Rowboats and other vessels are available for hire at several points along the riverside paths. The waterfront is also the site of a local market, held every Wednesday and Saturday morning, that clogs the streets of the usually placid town.
