Vale do Sousa

Intense days await you in Vale do Sousa... If you are a lover of either cultural tourism, active tourism, nature, health tourism and wellness tourism or gastronomy, you’ll find a lot to discover ...

For lovers of cultural tourism, we recommend a visit to the Romanesque Route, which encompasses 21 monuments, built since the tenth century, many dating back from the founding of the nation. Within 20 km from the Solar Egas Moniz will find 10 of these romanesque monuments. Tell us in advance if you’d like a tour of the Romanesque Route with a Heritage guide.

The Sousa Valley is also ideal for those who enjoy active tourism. Adventure lives here!

  • The exciting and adrenaline-filled rafting descents in Rio Paiva, one of the cleanest rivers in Europe.
  • Several trails with varying difficulty for mountain biking, accompanied by expert guides.
  • Quiet afternoons of horseback riding through the most beautiful landscapes in the region.
  • A pair of boots, a backpack with a picnic lunch, sunscreen and a camera handy is all you need to scroll through dozens of kilometers of marked paths for hiking trails existing in Vale do Sousa.
  • If you enjoy the small pleasures of life, you will surely surrender to the cuisine and wines of the region, with a mandatory visit to Quinta da Aveleda and the Cozinha da Terra Restaurant (awarded a Golden Fork in 2015’s Good Food Good Bed Guide).

Take a peek at our suggestions emphasizing the experience of authentic and memorable experiences in the "EXPERIENCES" menu.
