  • Worth up to Monte de Lanhoso to enjoy the great granite monolith, where was built the Castle and the sanctuary of our Lady of Pilar, in addition to the breathtaking view over the village of Póvoa de Lanhoso. Also interesting is the Castro, in the vicinity of the Castle. In historical terms, although there is no evidence duly substantiated, it is said that there was a treaty signed between d. Teresa (mother of Afonso Henriques) and d. Urraca (Treaty of Lanhoso), before the birth of the Portuguese nation. The castle was built for territorial defence, for it is towering to the valleys of the rivers Cávado and Ave. Obviously, is an attraction worthy of visit, when we follow de Braga for the Gerês.

  • This is a very ancient castle, before the portuguese nationality, that was converted in a local history museum. This museu with an interesting architecture in iron.  more »
  • Small medieval castle from the time of the founding of the Country. The wall now is small and spare the tower where there is a Museum (€ 1/adulto). Note that the stairs are difficult to access for people with mobility limitations. Near the castle there is a church and their ordeals. Essential visit the Castro which is next to the castle to see the ruins of several houses from the iron age and bronze and 3 still houses rebuilt with thatched roof. Worth a visit!
