Arcos de Valdevez

Is a beautiful Alto Minho town surrounded by verdant nature and bathed by the lovely Vez River located in the Peneda-Gerês National Park.

Inhabited by humans since pre-historic times, Arcos de Valdevez, aside from its natural beauty, it is also a historical area where, according to tradition, Afonso VII de Leao and D. Afonso Henriques’s troops met, in 1140, originating in the consecration of the Portuguese kingdom.

Its irregular roads and architecture, old mansions and churches, captivate all who visit.

Another “must see” is the old “Campo da Feira” or Fair Ground, since 1456 located by the river, providing beautiful landscapes and peace of mind.

Discover for yourself.
