About the neighbourhood
The place, called Espinhaço, was habited at least since the eighteenth century, mostly by fishermen. It is an ancient village with narrow, winding streets. Today it is a place of good-natured simple people. We recommend that you take a walk along riverside (Douro) to 20 meters away from the Casa do Mestrinho. In Avintes:- Parque Biológico de Gaia

We recommend that you come by car. The Casa do Mestrinho is located a few minutes from the access to several motorways (E1, A1, A29, A32, A44, A3, A4).
