Poiares

District: Bragança | County: Freixo de Espada à Cinta | Parish: Poiares

The traditional houses aligned in schist, the landscape of the village surrounded by mountains, with the river passing by below and the clean air that draws you closer to nature would be more than enough reasons to visit Poiares Village, in Freixo de Espada à Cinta. But there are many more! Located in the midst of the International Douro Natural Park, the landscape is enough to take your breath away. To enjoy the fullness of the landscape, go to see the Penedo Durão viewpoint, the shrines or the folds in the rocks. In the centre, the village also has a wealth of heritage to choose from; from the Parish Church to Fraga do Gato/Lontra, with its cave paintings, as well as the Alpajares Path, Alva Castle, the Mill, or the old Ribeira do Mosteiro Bridge.

Several signposted paths allow you to take paths that pass by these emblematic sites, in particular the main two: the Alpajares Path and the Viewpoints Route. Cultural traditions are still well-rooted in the village: here they still have the breaking of the folar bread and it is normal to see women knitting socks with four needles, sitting at their doors while the men, in their spare time, entertain themselves playing raiola, sueca or chincalhão.

Religion also plays an important role in the village: in August there are festivals in honour of Nossa Senhora do Rosário, the patron saint of Poiares Parish. As for the cuisine, the Easter folar is the most emblematic dish and will make your mouth water!
