"Ponte de Lima is located in the southern bank of the Lima, a small river with sources in Spain.

One of the oldest towns in Portugal, it was historically significant as a Roman settlement in the road from Braga to Compostela and Lugo, and the first place in Portugal getting a municipal chart.

Every second Monday, it holds one of the largest country markets in Portugal.

The attractive rural area around has the largest concentration of baroque manors in Portugal (Bertiandos, Brandara, Calheiros, and Pomarchão are among the best known); Some provide tourism accommodation."
