Agra

District: Braga | County: Vieira do Minho | Parish: Rossas

Agra Village is framed in a landscape of rare beauty. Situated in Rossas Parish, Vieira do Minho Municipality, it lies in the foothills of Cabreira Mountain and the Ave River runs through it.
Explore this housing cluster at your leisure, walking along its granite cobbled streets and let yourself be surprised by the religious notes that appear here and there, such as the shrines, the crosses and the Chapel of São Lourenço itself, which once quenched the thirst in the souls of the inhabitants. To quench the body’s thirst, there are fountains and drinking spouts all over the village.

Besides the natural breathtaking landscape, which allies the mountain surroundings with a scene broken up by small farms separated by walls and hedges, the legacy of its agricultural past, the village is punctuated by several points of interest that you shouldn’t miss. The footpath that leads to the Ave mills and the interesting Roman Bridge are a must! The houses and other architecture in the village reveal their past and markedly rural identity, in the simplicity and functionality of the forms that deserve a closer look. At the Agra restaurant, enjoy typical local dishes, with emphasis on the tasty Barrosa veal, kid and cabbage with beans! In order to be able to spend more time enjoying this peaceful spot, choose one of the places to stay in the village: Cruzeiro House, Delegado House or Varanda da Eira House.

If you want to take home a souvenir of this beautiful village, remember that you can also get typical handcrafted pieces made on the spot, with emphasis on weaving and embroidery, you can even learn how to make these items - and handmade cheeses - in a workshop in the village!
