Sistelo

District: Viana do Castelo | County: Arcos de Valdevez | Parish: Sistelo

Sistelo Village is located in Arcos de Valdevez Municipality, in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, near the source of the Vez River. Famous for its terraced landscapes, where corn is grown and cattle graze, the village is very well preserved, the typical granite houses, the granaries and public wash houses having been restored.

Sistelo Castle, a landmark of the village, deserves a thorough visit: the palace dates from the late 19th century and was home to Visconde de Sistelo lived. Stroll the streets of Sistelo and enjoy the Parish Church, Visconde de Sistelo House, the Roman bridge and the Mill, the Sistelo bridge downstream, the Chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Aflitos and the Chapels of Santo António, São João Evangelista, Senhora dos Remédios and Senhora do Carmo.

Be sure to go up to the viewpoint in Chã da Armada to admire the magnificent panoramic view! If you are fond of nature hikes, take the Brandas de Sistelo Trail (10 km), which begins in the village, and get to know the brandas in Rio Covo, in Sistelo, in Alhal, in Padrão and in Cerradinha, where sheep were grazed in summer. The characteristic handicrafts of the village are round wool socks and wool aprons. Make the most of the opportunity and take home a few pieces as souvenirs!
