Guest review score

7.6 from 29 reviews

The Estuary of Villaviciosa is a striking, very much appreciated, natural spot, combining elements from the river and the sea, Bragança - Nearby Locations. Cristal Hotel is situated near the well-known Estuary of Villaviciosa, Introduction to Transmontana. It is famous for its special drink "sider", and above all, and has beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, Directly to the south of Bragança in this region known as Trás-os-Montes, there is the quaint typical village of Chacim whose history is linked to a legend dating from the 9th Century that is still celebrated today. The villagers rose up in revolt against the ancient practiced right of "jus primae noctis", which is the local nobleman taking the bride on her wedding night, . Assisted by a mysterious woman the villagers successfully slaughtered the offending lord and his servants. Nearby is the Spa Caldas de Albelheira. Further to the south is Vila Flor, a small town with an attractive atmosphere with ruins of its 13th Century castle and close to another Spa, Aquas Bem Saúde. Southwards is Torre de Moncorvo that has the largest 16th Century Church in the whole province and near this town is the Vale do Cõa that boasts the world’s largest known collection of open-air Stone Age drawings that are estimated to be about 20.000 years old. These drawings feature bulls, horses, fish and a naked man and the area can be visited with the assistance of a guide. The forests surrounding the valleys are specially recommended for hiking, Of outstanding natural beauty is the national park of Montesinho that lies to the north of Bragança. This reserve covers some 70.000 hectares of wild terrain basically unspoilt by modern humanity. Locally termed Terra Fria, which is Cold Land,, the Park rises to a mountain range touching 1.481 metres. Vegetation is sparse on the upper slopes that then descend into valleys of oak, willow and alder trees. Wildlife in the shape of golden eagles, falcons, wolves, otters and wild boar still enjoy their freedom. The quaint typical village of Vinhais lying to the west of Bragança is an ideal location to obtain the spectacular panoramic views of this Park. Horses and mountain bikes can be hired locally. The “Dovecotes” of the area with their horseshoe shaped roofs are a realistic reminder of medieval times. They are specially built dove houses that as well as being a form of food also provide fertilizer droppings for growing crops. Between Bragança and Vinhais is the Mosteiro de Castro de Avelãs dating from the 12th Century but now virtually in ruins. This monastery held the main religious power in the region during its heyday. The main characteristics of this Estuary of great environmental value are the halophilous and sub-halophilus vegetation, highly valued, its important fauna, especially ornithological and the great variety of units generated within its boundaries, This Transmontana area also abounds in historic castles which acted from medieval times as a line of defence against the often invading Spanish and French armies. In many town visitors can find castles and forts that have for the better part withstood the results of battles and misfortune. Many of these monuments are associated with small medieval villages and even standing alone in the countryside. Starting from the northern boarder the most interesting locations are Montalegre, Chaves, Monforte de Rio Livre, Bragança, Algoso, Ansiães Numão and Freixo de Espada á Cima. Moving further south there is Penedono, Marialva, Castelo Rodrigo, Trancoso, Pihel, Almeida, Celorico da Beira, Linhares, Belmonte, Sabugal, Sortleha, Penamacor, Monsanto and Idana-a-Velha. The Estuary flows into Tazones, and above all, between the beaches of El Puntal and Rodiles and gradually narrows into the centre of Villaviciosa itself, when it reaches The Porreos, name given to the pieces of land found in the area reclaimed from the sea where sub-halophilus meadows can be found with highly interesting canals and ponds, Of all these mountain ranges of the most prominent is the Serra da Estrela that rises to 1.993 metres, which is 6.539 feet, . During the winter the very top area of Serra da Estrela provides a ski resort but with somewhat limited runs for any experienced ski enthusiast. The past weather conditions have not been sufficiently reliable to create a large resort for this sport. The bare granite of this range of mountains has virtually insufficient vegetation to support more than the grazing of sheep. These sheep provide the most rated cheese of all in Portugal and is known by the trade name of "Serra". Like most mountain areas this is a popular location for walkers offering fascinating flora and panoramic views. The area has also developed a special breed of dog after which it is named. These dogs are generally prove to be very intelligent, brave and loyal to their owners. Their thick heavy coat helps as a natural protection to survive the regions cold winter climate., Description of Bragança, In the area of Lamas de Olo the locally grown maize is still stored in the curious practical structures named “Segueiros”. These structures are either built from wood or granite and raised from the ground so that they maintain the maize in the right conditions. They have hardly changed from their original design dating back to the early 18th Century. Close to the village is the spectacular water cascades named Fisgas de Ermelo. On the northwest side of this Park is the town of Cabeceiras de Basto, a popular location as a refuge from the Moors during their lengthy occupation of Portugal. By reputation this was due to the apparent fighting tenacity of the monks who once inhabited the Mosteiro de Refojos., The Romans named Chaves as “Aquae Flaviae” around 78 AD after their discovery of the thermal springs and nearby gold deposits. Its fertile surroundings and strategic position marked its early history with various battles and sieges between wandering tribes. The Portuguese eventually took possession of the town from the Moors in 1160. The town was given to Nuno Álvares Pereira by King João I as a reward for defeating the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. General Silveira in 1809 defeated General Soult with his French invading army here at Chaves and this was the first victory for the Portuguese against the intruders. After the Republicans took control of Portugal in the early 20th Century the city was subject to a failed attack in 1912 from Royalists based in Spain. In 1483 the first published book in the Portuguese language, the "Sacramental", was produced in this town., Follow this tour of northern Portugal’s archaeological sites and take in the incredible scenery.
