WELCOME TO VINHÓ
Welcome to our little village of Vinhó which is situated in the parish of Vila Cova de Alva, in the municipality of Arganil and district of Coimbra.
Vinhó is a very small beautiful village with only a few habitants. We have a small bar (Casa Regional), a church (Capela de Vinhó) and a cemetery. I hope you enjoy the photos. If you go for a walk you are likely to pass through Vinhó and into one of our neighbouring villages and towns. I took the photos below on a short walk through Vinhó and Casal de São João.
A few metres down the road we have a very steep hill and after a brisk 10 min walk you reach the top and the delights of a super Cafe/bar (Lena Cafe, Portela da Cerdeira) which sells great coffee, Pastel de natas and beer. It is also a small mini market which sells groceries including magnum ice creams – yippee!
There is also a petrol station before you reach Côja which sells coke, snickers and ice cream. It also sells petrol (just in case you thought we only go there for snacks).

Spring flowers of Arganil (March 2021)
How beautiful are these Spring flowers in Arganil? They are dotted all down the middle of a road in the town and all around the roundabout too. So very pretty and Arganil always has beautiful floral displays.
