Agunchos

District: Vila Real | County: Ribeira de Pena | Parish: Cerva

Agunchos, in Cerva Parish, Ribeira de Pena Municipality, is a typical rural village of aristocratic beauty. On the slopes of the Tâmega River, between Barroso and Marão mountains, there is an elegant cluster of neatly aligned granite houses, true examples of age-old architecture, with artistically worked arches, pillars and courtyards conferring unique beauty. As you stroll along, keep your head up and your eyes open. You will be amazed by the beauty of the well-preserved buildings, the streets and alleyways, the Church, or the slab threshing floors, granaries and sheds for keeping farm tools and fodder.

Stop every once in a while to appreciate the place where the Tâmega valley meets the Laredo river. A breathtaking landscape, visible from several points in the village. Be sure to mix with the locals and, why not take part in the corn husking or other traditional farming activities? These were reinstated on the initiative of the Agunchos Sports, Cultural and Recreational Association, which also has a folk dancing group. If you extend your stay, you can find accommodation at Cerrado House, an old farmhouse, restored according to the original features but also with all the modern conveniences and comforts to welcome visitors. Nearby, Cabresto House and Mota House, in Alvite, in the same parish, are also excellent choices.

In the parish restaurants you can and should enjoy the typical cuisine of the region, which includes cabidela rice, pork rojões, cabbage with beans, fortified corn and regional sausages. For dessert, indulge yourself with pudding, homemade sponge cake and mexidos. As a souvenir, there is nothing better than the handmade linen items or a tasty traditional jam.
