ponte da barcaMeet Ponte da Barca, a cute town in the north of Portugal, whose name mentions a boat (“barca”). Besides taking people and goods from one side to the other of the river Lima, it was not uncommon for the boat to also carry pilgrims on the way to Santiago de Compostela.

More than just a pretty face, Ponte da Barca is also one of the places that claims to have been the birthplace of Fernão de Magalhães, aka, Ferdinand Magellan, the person who organized the first circumnavigation of the Earth, way back in the 16th century.
