Portugal’s Hideaways: Podence

Come and discover Podence, an old Portuguese parish in the municipality of Macedo de Cavaleiros

Located in Trás-os-Montes, Macedo de Cavaleiros municipality. The historical heritage, mostly of a religious nature, spans the Baroque and Neoclassical periods and reaches the 20th century. Next to Azibo, the largest reservoir in the region, it invites you to bathe, participate in radical activities, and have a good rest.

One of Podence’s best-known celebrations is the Carnival of the Caretos, preserving the specificity of Trás-os-Montes living, which is today one of the last strongholds of a dying way of life.
