Activities/Attractions: It was in Porto and the north that Portugal came into being as a country, which is why the region has such a rich and fascinating heritage. This is a mountainous area with rivers, natural parks and steep, sloping hillsides covered with leafy vegetation. The granite from its mountains was used to build many of the region’s religious and historical monuments, such as the unpretentious Romanesque chapels and baroque churches.
History surrounds you when you visit the region’s castles - the castle at Guimarães was the birthplace of the nation’s founder and first king, Dom Afonso Henriques. And at the countless manor houses and palaces emblazoned with coats of arms, visitors are received with an aristocratic display of hospitality.
However, this region also owes much of its character to the great waterway that cuts it in half, the scenic River Douro, whose vine-filled valley is today classified as a world heritage site.
Monção is a rural town surrounded by green fields and vineyards. The town is located on the left bank of the Minho river in front of Salvaterra, a village in Galicia. Due to the proximity of Castile, King Dinis built the Castle of Monção with a dungeon, surrounding walls and a subterranean passage down to the river's edge.
No longer engaged in battles with the Spaniards, the town today is peaceful. One can eat good food and drink the divine Alvarinho wine and attend the curious Festa da Coca which is celebrated each year. Monção is in the county of Viana do Castelo.
