Come and enjoy moments of relaxation and pleasure in Porto das Manadas where history tells stories, the spirit becomes one with nature and everything turns into a profound feeling of peace and well-being. This fishing port with great historic tradition was built out of the basaltic rock that came from the volcanic eruption.
