Day 8. Vila Nova de Foz CoaAugust 16, 2017 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C
Where on earth is Foz Coa? It is on the eastern side of Portugal near the Spanish border.
The purpose of the long bus ride to the other side of the country was to visit the Pre historic Rock Art site. I was unable to book a visit on their site (quite useless) and this was confirmed by the staff at the hostel.
On arrival I left Shirl drinking a coffee whilst I went to visit the Museo Office. Could not locate it. Then the Tourist Office. a most unhelpful woman confirmed she could not book visits and was unsuccessful in ordering a taxi for me.
I did not appreciate humping both bags 1 km to the hostel, which is the only accommodation in town. (I will Check this out tomorrow)
The staff in the hostel were indifferent to us but the room is very good.
I was very grumpy at this stage but later we managed to find a good tapas/restaurant and enjoyed a pleasant meal. The beer went down well.
We will explore tomorrow.Read more
