ROADMAPS

TRIPS WITHIN THE FARM

Within the boundaries of the farm there are nearly 15 kilometres of paths through fields, pastures and woods through which you may choose to walk, cycle (reservation needed) or ride (from next summer). They will take you through farmed land, grazing fields, chestnut groves, woods and forests.
The Quinta D'Alagoa suggests mountain bike outings, within and beyond the farm, visiting villages and national heritage monuments.

CULTURE

We recommend the towns of Chaves and Mirandela for their excellent historic value. Chaves has long been known for its castle as well as its water spa. As a border town, it has brewed an interesting mix of Portuguese and Galicean (Spain) culture over the centuries. Mirandela became famous for its many public gardens, interspersed with historic buildings.
For shorter outings we recommend the region of Valpaços for its vast ecclesiastic heritage. Of particular interest is the Igreja Paroquial de Carrazedo de Montenegro. This church was built in the sixteenth century and remodeled in the baroque style in the eighteenth century.

Only a mere 500 metres from the Quinta D'Alagoa, at a place called Torre, a treasure of 600 Kg of roman coins was uncovered. It was named the Émeres treasure.



THE REGION

The Quinta D'Alagoa is just 20 minutes away from the spas of Vidago, in Portugal, and Verin, just across the border in Spain. It is also about 40 minutes away from 3 important Nature Reserve Parks – Parque Natural do Montesinho, Parque Natural da Peneda-Gerês and Parque Natural do Alvão.
