Bico

District: Viana do Castelo | County: Paredes de Coura | Parish: Bico

Bico Village stretches from the slopes of Cono de Bico mountain to the banks of the Coura River, in Paredes de Coura Municipality. Stay in one of the rural tourism houses restored for this purpose and enjoy the serenity of the countryside! If you want to see the main monuments, the Parish Church, the chapels of Santa Luzia in Vencemal and São Bento in Vilares, the chapel of Santo António, the Parish Church and the Casa do Paço in Vascões are worth a special visit.

On the outskirts of the village, more precisely on Corno do Bico and Chã de Lamas mountains, you will find the vestiges of burial chambers dating back 5000 years, proving that there were settlements in the region during the Neolithic period. Hike along one of the suggested hiking routes: Varanda da Coura, Alto dos Morrões, Corno de Bico, Miradouros, Moinhos and Megalítico de Vascões trails. Be sure to visit the Corno do Bico Protected Landscape, where you can choose between walking, cycling or horse riding. If you are an adventurer at heart, you can also try your hand at some extreme sports such as paintball or rafting.

Bico Village invites you to taste some of its delicious typical delicacies: honey soup, Bico feijoada, papas de milho-miúdo (cooked maize and olive oil porridge), pork rojões, trout and corn biscuits.
The cultural traditions of the village that stand out the handicrafts are linen and wool items (jerseys and socks) and the Bico Country Folk Dancers, over 50 years old, who perform the traditional Bico dances and songs.
