I'm planning to be in Portugal in February, and specifically, in Porto, right before Ash Wednesday, and after doing research on carnavals, found out that a nearby city, Ovar, has a popular carnaval. However, I can't find too much general information on it or the city of Ovar itself while searching the web. Can someone describe to me the whole experience? I'm leaning towards checking it out one day/evening, but want to know more about it first.
Another question I have is, is it possible to take the train down for one evening, then head back to Porto at the end of the night?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
