From Porto airport to Finca Rio Miño (download a PDF copy)
Take exit sign and initially follow the PORTO/BRAGA signs (IP1 / A3). Then follow the signs indicatingA3/E1 Motorway/BRAGA. (Take cares not to take IP1 to Viana do Costelo/Valenca sign)
After approx 6klms, look out with care for a very sharp turn off right showing A3 BRAGA/VALENCA Motorway.
It is easy to miss this, because the sign is so close to the actual turnoff.
Approx. 300 metres from this turnoff is the toll booth (PEAGE). Pick up your ticket. Keep in the far right lane and not go through the lane with a green tick over it. Be careful of traffic coming from the left.
RELAX now; it is a straight run towards Valença where you will need 7 euros and 5 centimos toll fee.
APPROX 1 HOURS DRIVE.
After paying your toll fee at the end of the motorway, take the second turning right, signposted N13 to Vila Nova de Cerveira/ Caminha (still on the Portuguese side of the river) Keep in left lane towards Vila Nova de Cerveira/Caminha (do not take the road into Valença) Also, do not take the earlier turning on the N303 unless you want a long scenic mountain trip.
Continue on N13 until you approach Vila Nova de Cerveira and after passing under a bridge you will see a sign right to Espanha /Goian and possibly ferry (there have been a lot of sign changes recently). Carefully follow signs to Espanha to the new bridge over the Rio Miño into Spain . You will come to a new roundabout on the Spanish side, and you are now one hour ahead of Portugal .
Take the 2nd exit on roundabout towards La Guarda and through Goian. Go straight through the village and on leaving Goian, you will see a sign on right Concello De Rosal, and immediately after is Bodega ADEGAS TOLLODOURO, SA ALBARIÑO (pink building), then the sign for LAS EIRAS. Turn left as indicated, and follow the road through the forest, with no turn off.
