Moimenta

District: Braga | County: Cabeceiras de Basto | Parish: Cavez

In the foothills of Gerês mountain, in a sheltered valley of Cabreira mountain, is Moimenta, a typical village in Cavez Parish, Cabaceiras de Basto Municipality. If you look at it from outside, Moimenta is a small cluster of beautiful houses surrounded on the mountain slopes almost completely by terraces occupied by vineyards, where quality vinho verde is produced. It is, in fact, an important centre for the production of vinho verde. Be sure to try it in its own home!

In addition to the natural beauty of the village, there are other reasons for visiting: the excellence of the architectural heritage, the tourist accommodation, good conditions for recreational hunting and fishing, hiking and mountain biking, organised by the Moimenta Recreational Association. If you walk through the village, take the opportunity to see the old bridge over the Moimenta River, listed as property of public interest.

Find accommodation in Casa do Vale, a traditional house which has been transformed into tourist accommodation. Savour the regional sausages and the local smoked meats and, above all, let yourself be enchanted by the simplicity, authenticity and hospitality of the people. A real natural asset that is worth visiting!
