Montesinho

District: Bragança | County: Bragança | Parish: França

Montesinho is a typical Trás-os-Montes village, situated in the foothills of Montesinho mountain, at an altitude of about 1000 metres, in the heart of the Montesinho Natural Park. Let the serenity of this village seduce you and spend a few days in one of the granite houses adapted for tourism, with slate roofs and wooden balconies open to the mountain! Walk the well-cared for cobbled streets of the village and discover the Montesinho Church, the Montesinho Interpretation Centre and Museum housed in a typical Trás-os-Montes house, where you can learn about the geological characterisation of Montesinho and the traditional ways of life in this “preserved village".

The natural beauty of this region is an invitation to long hikes: take the Montesinho Hiking Trail (10 kilometres), which will lead you along trails and roads in Montesinho, França and Portelo villages. Be amazed with the contrasting landscape: green pastures dotted with colourful flowers and the golden and reddish colours of the woods... You will be in the Montesinho Natural Park, so don’t be surprised if you see a golden eagle or a black stork, an Iberian wolf, or a deer! Delight in the famous Montesinho lamb, with smoked meats from Trás-os-Montes and the typical desserts of the region: ovos doces, honey cake, rosquilhas and súplicas biscuits. And don’t forget to try the wine and the spirits produced here.
