Favaios

District: Vila Real | County: Alijó | Parish: Favaios

Known for its Moscatel wine, Favaios Village has some surprises in store for you! Located in Alijó Municipality, it is part of the Douro wine-growing region, a world heritage site. Set on one of the most beautiful plateaus in the region, once you have reached this village, stop, listen, look and prepare yourself for a journey of the senses! In addition to the breathtaking landscape, archaeological marks, stately homes and religious monuments, Favaios offers mouth-watering cuisine!

Traversing the vast heritage to explore on a visit by Favaios, we’ll start with the walls of "Castelo dos Mouros", then pay a visit to the São Domingos village church, with the highest bell tower in the municipality, the chapel of Santa Bárbara, the chapel of São Paio, dating from the 16th century, the chapel of Santo António and, finally, Quinta de São Jorge, where you will find a Roman funerary stele. From other times, you can visit places such as Fonte Manuelina, Castro do Vilarelho and three Pombaline granite pillars. In the centre of the village, two magnificent buildings stand out: Sepúlvedas Manor and Távoras House, two old noble houses. Don’t be surprised to see other opulent houses on your trip.

Both bread and wine have a long tradition in the area. You can get to know these in detail with a visit to the Bread and Wine Museum. Be sure to try the bread that is made here, a real delicacy baked in a traditional bakery: taste the famous Favaios bread and indulge yourself with the “four-corner bread” or meatloaf. But the cuisine has more to offer: from Trás-os-Montes style feijoada, roast kid, milhos de vinhos d'alhos, feijocas ensopadas, rice and beans, barbecued cod, sopas de raia, cod fritters, meatloaf, custard, sweet aletria pasta and rice pudding, to be enjoyed with good regional wines, whether generous or table wines, there are many options not to be missed! The visit will not be complete without a trip to the Favaios Cooperative Wine Cellar. A good souvenir to take home from the village would be the famous and unique Moscatel, "Moscatel de Favaios”!
