Casa de Padornelos, one of the first taverns in Alto Tâmega, sums up well its essence. It is located in the municipality of Montalegre, in Padornelos, two steps away from one of the highest mountains in the country, the Serra do Larouco. Sr. Ricardo is the Master of the Hams and those who taste them never forget them. D. Aldina is the queen of the kitchen and out of her hands comes one of Barroso’s most coveted and authentic stews, truly unmissable. As it is a private house, the reservation must be made one week in advance and for at least 10 people.
