Vila Verde

Towns and Villages

Standing in the heart of an extremely fertile region, at the point where the River Homem flows into the River Cávado, Vila Verde offers visitors the chance to appreciate some of the most beautiful countryside in Portugal, in a bucolic setting that is ideal for hunting and fishing enthusiasts.

In the summer, almost all of the villages have their own special religious festivities, attracting many visitors from outside and breathing even more life and colour into the region.

As far as the local handicraft is concerned, the region's most characteristic products are the "lenços de namorados" (lovers' handkerchiefs) made of linen or cotton and embroidered with a simple phrase expressing the great love and admiration felt by those offering them as a present.
