Labruge is a small seaside town located on the Portuguese Coastal Camino de Santiago. While the area is renowned for the white sands and crystal clear waters of the many beaches in the area, the town does have a surprising number of cultural places and natural areas to visit.
Let’s take a look at the things to do and see in 24 hours in Labruge.
Castro de Sao Paio
As an archaeological site, Castro de S. Paio iis one of the most stunning places in Labruges. It is the only maritime castro that exists in Portuguese territory, with others are located in the Galicia area.
It has been the target of several actions for safeguarding and conservation, which include the archaeological excavations that were the target between 1993 and 1996, since the 90s of the 20th century.
Chapel of Sao Paio
A small chapel was built in the middle of an agricultural field facing the sea in 1885, located in Castro de S. Paio,
The altar of the chapel stands out as it was made in a rock brought from the ocean. The chapel is surrounded by farming areas and rural roads, at the top of cliffs that descend on the beach.
A must-visit place for culture lovers and pilgrims who travel the Camino de Santiago.
Foz Do Rio Onda
The Onda River flows between the beaches of Angeiras and Labruge and has a bridge crossing at its mouth that connects the two parishes. The River Onda is privileged for its local heritage, where you can find some water mills that, in the past, were prevalent in this region.
