Just go inside and join hundreds of tourist hang around the place starry-eyed and indulging in the varied food offered by numerous restaurants. You can taste cherry wine or visit one or many of the local shops selling anything from handicrafts to textiles. We had our dinner at the O'Facho restaurant. Tasty smoked codfish with good quality of Portuguese (Port)wine to gulp it down.” Read Full Review
