The most prominent building in the center is the BIgreja Matriz, whose main portal is nothing short of spectacular. 

Golegã is often considered the horse capital of Portugal and several tournaments are held here to celebrate the Lusitano breed.

Notice

When entering Golegã, arrows indicate a right turn on the first street. DO NOT take that road. Instead, take the next. You will arrive in the same place (the main square and church), but you will get to see the impossibly beautiful building that is the Cphotography museum and studio of Carlos Revas.

Fiesta

Two horse fairs are held every November.

The Road

There are confusing arrows leading you the wrong way out of town by way of Rua Dom João IV. Ignore these and instead find your way to the front of the church. Walk around it via the square with the bullfighter (your left). Turn left on that road, and then right again. Follow the road all the way to, and through, an intersection with the N243.

Ihr müsst unbedingt beim Taverna do forcado vorbeischauen. Das Restaurant wird von einem liebevollen Ehepaar geführt und öffnet früher als die Konkurrenz. Er spricht zwar nur Portugiesisch, dafür setzen seine englisch sprechende Ehefrau und er alles in die Wege, damit ihr einen angenehmen Aufenthalt habt.

I stopped in a new restaurant, Queques da Villa, for brunch and their food is amazing! Maria is so welcoming, she did the pilgrimage herself and knows how difficult it is.

My favorite accommodations of any type so far. They DO take reservations, are very comfortable, have a GREAT kitchen, and it's clean and just super pleasant.

If you are cycling, there is a cycling Albergue of town with great accomodations including breakfast.

Albergue de Adames is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Quiet, clean, comfortable, and they take reservations. We had a comfortably furnished private room, and enjoyed their spacious and well equipped kitchen.
