Chacim

District: Bragança | County: Macedo de Cavaleiros | Parish: Chacim

Chacim Village is located in the foothills of Serra de Bornes, in Macedo de Cavaleiros Municipality.
To best enjoy the view of this village, stay in a rural tourism house and leisurely savour the tranquillity of Trás-os-Montes! Discover the heritage of this village, in particular, the Real Filatório de Chacim, dating from 1788 and classified as property of public interest. This is an industrial complex for processing and manufacturing silk, now in ruins. It is an important example of the silk industry in Europe.

Next door is the Real Filatório de Chacim Interpretation Centre, where you can get more information on the history of this complex and on the treasures found during archaeological digs. Get to know the Balsamão Convent and its museum, part of the retirement and nursing home belonging to the congregation of the Marianos da Imaculada Conceição. Enjoy the colourful view from the top: the white of the broom, the golden cornfields, the green of the olive groves, vineyards, and the pine groves and the herds of animals grazing in the fields!

Stroll slowly, listening to the sound of the small stream that crosses Chacim and look closely at the two bridges, Bairinho and Paradinha, dating back to the middle ages, the chapel of Desterro and the Pillory (property of public interest). Weaving, embroidery and sewing are the traditional handicrafts in Chacim. The São José Fair (19 March) and the Annual Onion Fair (10 September) are the most famous events in the village.
