Portugal’s Hideaways: Arcos de Valdevez

Come and visit Arcos de Valdevez, a Portuguese village in the district of Viana do Castelo, North region

Arcos de Valdevez can be considered a small seduction box, set in the Vale do Vez, Arcos preserves all the characteristic charm of the Alto Minho: green landscape, abundant freshness, sunny architecture, and a river that spreads the vanity of an entire village laden with history.

The Land of Valdevez and how its people take root in distant time. Fringed by the poetic Lima, furrowed in the middle, and from end to end, by the idyllic Vez that gives it its name, watered, in many losses by bouncing and crystalline streams, capriciously shaped by nature, now in mountains of steep slopes Soajo and Peneda and ecstatic viewpoints, now on lazy hillsides where wine ripens and, sleepy floodplains where bread grows.

Secular manor houses, medieval towers and bridges and a history abound throughout the County, temples of all styles, endless and traditional pilgrimages and unrivaled cuisine. The Land of Valdevez is a portentous symphony of sun and breezes, of light and colors, in which the dominant note is the lush green without peer.
