Trás-os-Montes: Built historical and cultural Heritage


Trás-os-Montes is one of the regions in Northern Portugal with the most reasons to visit. 

Begin your journey by staying in the city of Chaves.

Learn all about the history and culture that come from the Roman presence in the Iberian Peninsula, and take the time to enjoy the medicinal waters of Emperor Flávio Vespasiano’s Baths. 

Next, visit the city of Bragança and sense its strong medieval heritage, which can be felt in any of its religious monuments.

Also visit the Bragança Castle and the Towers that surround it. 

Do not complete your trip without visiting Trás-os-Montes’s villages that spread throughout the region as proof of its people’s connection with the past.

In these villages, they still share the woodstove, the threshing floor, the mill, the pasture and the breeding cattle.

Visit, for example, the villages in the municipality of Montalegre, and those of Guadramil and Rio de Onor, where they still speak a very old dialect.

Also learn the region’s typical dances and enjoy the irresistible Trás-os-Montes cuisine, ranging from the famous Mirandesa beef to the Montesinho honey, for example.
