|2||Viana Do Castelo||C||10 O||①②||41.67822°
|Sandy and Muddy, showers not great. Long way from town over dangerous narrow bridge. Noisy from Disco?|

|4||Arcos de Valdevez||P||Gratis||①②③||41.84735°
|Car Park next to River. Handy for Vinho Verde wine trail and Peneda National Park which is stunning. Town OK but not great|
|Looked in a state of disrepair. Showers, etc mediocre. Fast Wifi. And the bus journey into Porto is to die for. 400m from beach|
|6||Sobrado De Paiva||P||Gratis||①②||41.03974°
|In town centre car park. Noisy all night with street racers drunks from the disco and busses. Handy for starting the N222 drive through the Douro|
|On Quayside in wonderful town that is the centre of the Port industry. Quaffing available everywhere. Would give 5 stars but took two days to get out on steep wet cobbles|
|Set in small town park with toilets, showers and BBQ area. Supermarket, cheap diesel, restaurants and laundry all very close. Nowhere to empty grey water. Noisy from road and busses in morning|
|Car Park in centre of village underneath the mountain top citadel of Monsanto which a very special place. Drinking water available. Noisy with Farm traffic in mornings|
|10||Vila Velha de Rodao||A||Gratis||①②||39.65086°
|In a good spot by river. Noisy with Lorries and train. Uninspiring town that smells of cabbage. Was busy when we were there in mid-November. Close to Motorway South|
|In a car park by the river. Only 2 bays. Next to Pub/club and a mountain climb into town. All a bit isolated for us.|
|On muddy car park in centre of town in not the best area. Shared with travelling fairground vehicles and families resting for the winter|
|In car park of the convent. During the day you can only stay 4 hours. OK for a night but be on your toes by 8am|
|Lovely campsite let down by no hot water in the showers. Free WiFi, not far from a Lidl. Onsite Bar restaurant. Bit of a schlap into town/beach|
|Free overnighting in the centre of this fabulous town. At weekends this place is full by 4pm even in the winter. Come and watch the waves, the biggest in the world.|
