A relaxed bike ride from Modelo to Caminha, through the Mata do Camarido, and then back. Caminha is a small town with a beautiful city center. The Rua Direita has a good number of 16th century houses. The Igreja Matriz is a very interesting monument.: late gothic, early renaissance, with a strong taste of the Spanish plateresco, which in Portugal is sometimes hard to distinguish from the manuelino style. The ceiling is gorgeous.

After Mata do Camarido, avoid the stretch of road by the river, since it is ugly. Prefer to enter Caminha through the Rua Visconde Sousa Rego.
