The Minho is famous for its sprawling outdoor markets, but the largest, oldest and most celebrated is the Feira de Barcelos, held every Thursday in this ancient town. Tour buses arrive by the dozen, spilling their contents into the already brimming marketplace. Even if you don’t come on a Thursday, you’ll find that Barcelos has a pleasant medieval core, with old stone towers perched over the river. It also harbours an ancient but still-thriving pottery tradition.
