Interesting
Valença is located on a hill looking over the left bank of the Minho, opposite the Galician town of Tui, on the main road that connects Santiago de Compostela to Porto. The old district of Valença is a very unusual twinned area, comprising two Vauban-style strongholds joined by just one bridge. The metal bridge, built by Gustave Eiffel in 1884, is the pride of the locals.
