Located in Barcelos, Casas da Quinta da Cancela is in the historical district. Chapel of Our Lady of Aparecida and Church of St. Romanica Martin are local landmarks, and some of the area's activities can be experienced at Feitosa Golf Club and Golf Quinta da Barca.
Jorge has created a beautifully walled garden retreat where immediately upon entry one feels invited to sit, breath deeply, and let go of what ever burden one has been carrying! Both literally and figuratively I lay down my heavy Camino de Santiago pilgrim’s backpack and a few of the worries still plaugeing my mind even on my fourth day on this contemplative journey. Arriving in a pouring rain, I was happily treated and given a tour and guidance on the facilities. I was enchanted by the cozy lovely country dinning room, the well appointed grounds and my fabulous room! Having a bit of bursitis in one hip and toe problems, just prior to my morning departure, Jorge recommended instead of hiking, then grabbing a bus, I take the train at Viana along the picturesque coast to Valenca, and from there walk the 2.8 kms to Tui where I could give my aching bones a nice rest for the 100 km trek to Santiago! And he offered to drive me to Viana...a ride I thoroughly enjoyed as we shared our philosophies about people and aspirations to making the world a better place! I loved the Barcelos leg of my journey so much that I offered that when I retire I would return to be a live-in manager of the facility!
