Boassas

District: Viseu | County: Cinfães | Parish: Oliveira do Douro

On the right bank of the Bestança River, the old houses in Boassas Village are like a balcony overlooking the Douro River. Situated in Oliveira do Douro Parish, in Cinfães Municipality, Boassas has architectural heritage of significant architectural, cultural and historical value. Take your time walking down the narrow streets and by the ornate courtyards decorated with colourful flowerpots and discover the vestiges of the past in the architecture of the old houses. Be sure to visit the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Estrela, and right in the centre of the village, dating back to 1710, Caso do Cubo and Casa do Fundo da Rua, houses dating from the eighteenth century that belonged to the family of Serpa Pinto, a renowned African explorer.

Also the property of the Serpas was Quinta do Paço da Serrana, famous for the small and dense forest of exotic trees that surrounded the main house, which today lies in ruins. Don’t forget to visit Cerrado House and Outeiro House, in the garden of which stands an important cypress, the only one in the municipality, designated a tree of public interest. But Boassas also has breathtaking natural landscapes. In order for you to fully enjoy the natural riches of the region, remember that there are some must-see places which you can and should go to on foot. Climb to Lapa da Chã and admire the stunning views of the Douro, visit Penedos and Sítio da Tília and let yourself be enchanted by the Bestança River.

Stay at Lódão House or at the Porto Antigo Inn, about one kilometre away from the village. Admire the local handicrafts, essentially famous for ceramics and tinwork. And don’t leave before you have first surrendered to the pleasures of the local cuisine and especially its desserts. Be sure to taste the matulo, a typical butter dessert from Boassas, and accompany it with one of the exotic liquors produced in the region.
