Photographer's Note

Coming from the south, Lamego, is the entry point to the beautiful Alta Douro wine region. Sporting a pleasant old city centre with an impressing cathedral, the most interesting site is the small church of Santu跫io Nossa Senhora dos Rem嶮ios, sitting on a hill overlooking the town. While the church itself is of lesser interest, there is an impressing 686 step double staircase leading from the town center up to the church. According to tradition, one is supposed to climb these steps on one's knees. I wouldn't want to know the pain that must be causing. The staircase is widely adorned with beautiful Azujelos tiles.
