Towns and Villages

The town of Vimioso received its first charter in the sixteenth century, although the region had already been inhabited since prehistoric times, as can be seen from the remains found on the hill of Atalaia, which overlooks the town.

This frontier region was of great importance for the defence of the Portuguese territory against the Castilian invaders and one of the safest and most strategic points was the castle of Algoso, built next to the river in the thirteenth century, on a precipice overlooking a sheer drop of 681 metres.

In addition to its rich historical heritage, the municipality also contains the marble and alabaster quarries of Santo Adrião, which are well worth a visit.
