Burgo

District: Porto | County: Felgueiras | Parish: Pombeiro de Ribavizela

Burgo Village invites you on a medieval journey! Situated between Vila Fria and Pombeiro de Riba Vizela, here the ambience of the middle ages is overwhelming, in the granite buildings and the schist of the village landmark: the Pombeiro monastery. Set out on your discovery of this important national monument, founded in 1509 by D. Gomes Aciegas. It was the most impressive Benedictine monastery in the northern part of the country. Its historical importance is linked to the foundation of the nation and played an important role in the history of Portugal. Today, the monument is a beautiful and important example of Romanesque and 18th century architecture and is worth visiting!

Take a leisurely walk along the two hiking trails in the area, the “Green Paths” and the “Medieval Paths”, which will allow you to get to know the most important points of interest in the village in detail, such as the mill, the Roman bridge and road, the Pombeiro milestone, the Vizela River, and the rural paths and the traditional buildings. Both routes start at the camping park in Vila Fria, a rural camping park where you can spend the night in a tent, caravan or in one of the two bungalows available. Alternatively, stay right in the centre of Burgo, in the rural accommodation units, Paço de Pombeiro” or “Quinta do Mosteiro”.

During festival time, Pombeiro celebrates the feast of São Brás on the first Sunday in February each year, a good time to visit the parish. Rich in history and cultural interest, Burgo and the parish to which it belongs, Pombeiro de Riba Vizela have several points of interest that are not to be missed, such as the church, the Valmedrulho manors, the palace with the Melos coat of arms, and the typical Rua do Burgo. However there is more heritage to enjoy in addition to the buildings: the cuisine, for example. Savour the flavours of roast lamb, stuffed cod, cozido à portuguesa, cabidela rice, pork rojões and cornbread, which go down well with vinho verde. For dessert, be sure to try the tasty Margaride sponge cake, cavacas and lérias.
