Monção will be forever linked to the courage, bravery and determination of its people who demonstrated such qualities while defending the municipality against invaders. Currently, these lands of Northern Minho offer a full array of suggestions that propose a fantastic touristic trip: edified patrimony, thermalism, rich gastronomy – especially lamprey from the Minho River, oven-roasted lamb with saffron seasoned rice and “barriguinhas de freira”; as well as its embroidered work and the famous Vale do Gadanha linen festival. Monasteries and sanctuaries elevate their history, while the rivers that cross the many local mountains display all their natural fascination, highlighting spaces lined by the water's edge and must-see mountain places such as Santo António de Vale de Poldros. Monção offers the eyes of its most curious visitors, true hidden treasures.
