Tresminas

District: Vila Real | County: Vila Pouca de Aguiar | Parish: Tresminas

If you visit Vila Pouca de Aguiar, take advantage of this golden opportunity you have: to visit Tresminas Village. As the name indicates, this land was dominated for centuries by mining, particularly because of the gold mines that the Romans had in the village, considered the largest in Europe! So, don’t miss out on the Gold Mines Route, which runs through the Tresminas Roman Mining Complex. Through this activity, the Romans left several marks on the site, such as a complex system of underground galleries.

But there is striking evidence from more recent times that shaped the face of Tresminas: The medieval church, from the ninth century, prior to the founding of the nation, is a monument not to be missed on a visit to this village. The granite and schist houses have the traditional features of the region. The Tresminas Interpretation Centre is in the centre of the village. Here you can visit exhibitions dedicated to the Roman and mining heritage of the region and also the natural heritage, with abundant flora and fauna. You can also buy typical regional handicrafts. The rich nature around the entire village also deserves special attention, as the Tresminas Archaeological Park, due to the surrounding landscape, has abundant flora and fauna.

The best time to visit is during the lively Tresminas Roman Gold Festival. More than just a Roman fair, this is a celebration that recreates the environment lived in those times of exploration. The Roman market displays and sells food products of the era, archaeological replicas, re-creations of historical dramas, settlements and military camps, recreational spaces for children, live demonstrations of ancient crafts, daytime and night-time themed pageants, concerts, re-creation of the gladiatorial games and the Roman banquets are some of the activities that you can do around here once a year in the summer. Nature and walking whet the appetite! The typical restaurant, "Tasca do Chico", included in the local network of taverns, serves the most traditional products in the village: mushrooms, chestnuts and wild goat. Bon appétit!
