Surroundings  

A visit to the surroundings of Vila Nova de Foz Côa is a travel through a chapter of Portugal’s  History. In all villages, the visitor will find significant monuments, dating back to the early ages of the country at the time of the struggle against Castilla which lasted through the 13th century. Some of the castles, like the one in Marialva or the one in Penedono, still face the border with pride…

Pre-historical sites are more difficult to find, but the visitor will be surprised at the wealth of archaeological sites. All major sites are indicated along the roads, and a visit is always worthwhile.

Local villages are places to visit too. The medieval aspect of their narrow streets, the memories engraved in every wall, every pavement and every house, catch the visitor’s attention and make the visit an unforgettable experience.
