Freixo de Numão

District: Guarda | County: Vila Nova de Foz Côa | Parish: Freixo de Numão

There is a breathtaking view from Freixo de Numão, a village in Vila Nova de Foz Côa Municipality. On a plateau, surrounded by green mountains and with the Douro River at the bottom, this is a place of rare beauty and a delight to the senses. The vineyards as far as the eye can see and the granite houses, as rough as the terrain, are also landmarks of Freixo de Numão Village. The cluster of houses set very close to each other stands out against the green surroundings of the village. The main focus here is on the quality wine that comes from these lands.

Is everything ready? Then be prepared for a lengthy visit to Freixo de Numão. In addition to the local architecture, which can be seen in the houses and cobbled streets, there are green spaces to be explored and the Casa Grande Museum to be visited. After wandering through the village, where you’ll see the rural characteristics as well as several noble buildings, take the Archaeological Circuit Walking Trail. The tungsten mines, the Coladreira archaeological site and the Rumansil archaeological site are only a short distance away and bear witness to the passage of time here. From several points in the village, you can also take advantage of the viewpoints offering views of the breathtaking landscape as you come across other interesting buildings, such as Fonte da Bica, Fonte da Carvalha, the Regadas Mill, the Pillory, the bridge over Ribeira de Teja, the old castle, the Moutinho House Museum Centre, the Frog Tank, Fidalgos House, Casa de Cristão Novo, or the old Palace of Justice.

But in Freixo de Numão there is no shortage of cultural and leisure activities either. The Casa Grande Museum, of Archaeology and Ethnography, part of the Portuguese Museums Network, and its library are not to be missed. In the religious sphere there is also an extensive route to be discovered: the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, the chapel of Santa Bárbara, the Shrine to Nossa Senhora da Carvalha, the Chapel of Santo António and the Chapel of São Sebastião are all habitual places of pilgrimage. On the first Sunday in September, the annual feast in honour of Nossa Senhora da Carvalha is held. The feast of São Pedro is celebrated on 29 June.

With all the natural surroundings whetting your appetite, you will surely want to taste delicious typical pork and poultry dishes, the famous regional sausages, and the produce of the land, such as almonds, olive oil, and, in this region, the inevitable fine and table wines. For dessert, lampreia de ovos is worth a mention. In crafts, tinwork and ironwork are the most traditional in the village. Did you enjoy Freixo de Numão so much that you want to stay a few days longer? That’s not surprising. Stay at Bairro do Casal - Village Tourism
