Campos

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

With a vast heritage to enjoy, set out to discover Campos, in Vieira do Minho, a village that is full of character and endowed with rare natural beauty! Embraced by Cabreira Mountain, this well-preserved village has its very own rural identity that is captivating as you discover its streets and verdant setting.

This is a place to explore at your own pace, walking along the narrow, rustic, cobbled streets and visiting the heritage amassed over time. The cross, church, mills, Roman bridge, community oven and granaries are all places not to be missed. There are 46 granaries where ears of corn are stored. After drying and husking, they are given to the livestock and used to make bread! The houses in Campos village, which are good examples of the rural tradition of the Minho region, show their more practical aspects: the first floor is used for accommodation and the floor below is reserved for animals and farm chores. Threshing floors, patios, barns and granaries are other elements to be found in the village, revealing a past linked to agriculture.

But even more than the heritage, lose yourself in the legends and traditions of this centre of community life. Strike up a conversation with the locals and discover their warm hospitality.
Then, stroll around the village and breathe in all the pure air of this mountain environment and discover the ruins of the old tungsten mines, hidden by dense vegetation! But don’t forget the local cuisine, where Barroso vela, kid from the highlands of Minho, cheese, honey, and smoked meats stand out.
