TUI

 
Tui is a hilltop, border town next to the River Miño facing the Portuguese town of Valença do Minho, across the other side of the river bank. It started off as a Roman settlement called Tude and has a fascinating history in between periods of invasion and abandonment. Tui has been at war with Portugal and the Normans as well as being a part of the Visigoth Empire. Tui has also a strong Celtic influence. Today Tui is a vibrant place as it lies on an important pilgrimage route from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela, the Portuguese Way.

Tui has a well-preserved Old Town on San Telmo hill where you will see a number of important monuments, the most significant being its 11th-13th Century Romanesque Cathedral which is fortified like a castle. From its tower there are commanding views towards Portugal. A stroll around will also reveal the walled sections of the old fortifications which once protected the town. The oldest were built during the reign of King Ferdinand in the 12th century. One of the original gates, the Pia, still remains.

The main square lies at the heart of Tui which is lined with a number of attractive Galician-style buildings, a couple of churches and a band stand. A number of bars have outdoor seating  and it is a good spot to enjoy the ambience and for a rest. Other sites nearby worth exploring include Eifell´s iron bridge over the River Miño and the natural park at Mount Aloia with viewpoint where you can take in the amazing views.
