Things to do in Vieira do Minho, Portugal

It’s a fantastic setting, full of interest for anyone with a passion for nature, and also boasting a number of sights relating to early human settlement. There are prehistoric monuments here, including dolmen, and, much later, interesting structures such as the Espigueiros of Soajo – large granite warehouses built for storing food. The park would be perfect for walks, with numerous marked trails leading to spectacular features such as the many impressive waterfalls in the park. Alternatively you could also make the short trip from a holiday villa in Vieira do Minho west to the historic city of Braga.

A lovely hideaway - fantastic views!

5 of 5
We have had a wonderful 5 day stay in a very comfortable and charming cottage in the mountains. Very well placed to access the Peneda-Geres and some great hiking. Lovely owner and cottage beautifully decorated. Good instructions on location. Definitely try the delicious local honey and sea food - we had two lovely barbeques on the veranda. Access through the garden and about 2 minute walk to a little cove with some lovely swimming in the river. Great shower and overall very comfortable and clean. Would recommend to friends and relatives and definitely revisit if in area. Alan & Cindy (UK/Canada/South Africa)

Fantastic house in stunning location!

5 of 5
This is a beautiful house with extensive gardens set in the Geres mountains with stunning views. There is ample room for a large family group and the house is very well equipped with everything you might need. The swimming pool is larger than it looks in the pictures and very well maintained. Malfalda and Maria are superb hosts and deal with any queries straight away. This is a wonderful place for a quiet holiday in a very uncommercialised part of Portugal.
