Traffic Calming Art – Castro Marim

As we headed over the boarder into Portugal we decided to take a quick first left onto Castro Marim. It’s a lovely little village dominated by a castle which looks down on the villagers. What a treat to discover the new and traffic island art on approach. It’s really quite imposing and if the sight alone of the castle doesn’t make you want to stop and explore I think this certainly will.

Dolphin Discovery Isla Canela, Spain

Yes, we have dolphins in and around Isla Canela. Do you want to take a look? The boat leaves from Isla Canela Marina. It’s just a half an hour walk down the beach from our apartment or a five minute drive. You could also take the land train or a taxi from opposite our apartment. Have fun!

Saturday Market Castro Marim, Portugal

9th May 2015

Head across the river to Castro Marim not only can you explore the castle on Sarurday but also the market which is open all day.

Castro Marim is the first town after crossing the bridge into Spain. It takes around 15 minutes to get there from Isla Canela. There's plenty of parking as you enter the village and the market is easy to find.
