Covas

District: Viana do Castelo | County: Vila Nova de Cerveira | Parish: Covas

Located in the foothills of Covas and Arga mountains, and crossed by the River Coura, Covas Village is in Vila Nova de Cerveira Municipality. Its foundation dates back to medieval times, having been occupied by various peoples in olden times, as proven by the vestiges of an agricultural Castro (fortified settlement), the remains of a wall and evidence of a mining complex, found in Monte Furado.
If you want to spend a few quiet days in the village, you can choose the Covas camping park, most certainly the best option if you want to be close to nature!

While strolling through the village, take a look at Carboal House or Covas House, the parish church, the chapel of Santa Marinha, the chapel of São Gregório (15th/16th century), the chapel of Santa Luzia (16th/18th century) and the Nossa Senhora da Piedade cross (18th century). Make sure you climb to the top of Alto das Broas and of Lapa Grande to enjoy the beauty of the region. Admire Azenhas de Pagade, in the waters of the River Coura and enjoy a picnic in the picnic park. Hike along the Ribeira de Covas Interpretation Trail, an itinerary along the River Coura, with stunning landscapes and which is suitable for all the family.

If you are a nature lover, remember that there are several mountain tourism activities awaiting you, including mountain climbing and interpretation of the territory. Be adventurous! Try the trout and cozido à portuguesa, the main typical dishes of Covas. Take some typical village handicrafts, characterised by ironwork, home with you.
