Portugal: Tâmega & Sousa

Tâmega and Sousa

In the land of the valleys of Tâmega and Sousa, in the heart of the North of Portugal, stands an important architectural heritage of Romanesque origin. This exceptional legacy is seen in 58 monuments that carry legends and stories born with the foundation of the Nationality and which witness the significant role that this territory formerly played in the history of the nobility and religious orders in Portugal.
