Home The Region Municipalities Leisure Tradition Eating out? Sleeping out?



Right in the middle of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, inserted into a place of unique flora and fauna, where species like the wild nanny-goat, the “garrano” (small riding horse), the “bordaleira” sheep and the barrosã cattle can be found, Soajo is a very sought out tourist destination. The knowledge inherited by generations of ancestors is still visible in daily life: the splendid handcraft (wool and linen work, wood barrels, rattan overcoats),  regional products (honey, sausages, smoked ham) and a gastronomy that continues to favour the use of local produce and where roasted kid, “sarrabulho”, “rabanadas”, cream of milk and honey cake can always be enjoyed. In terms of the village’s edified patrimony, the pillory, a national monument located on the main square, is notable and worth a closer observation. Linked to the theme of "Nature Conservation" and to host tourists from Peneda-Gerês National Park, the Mezio Door is a place of privileged access to Soajo/Peneda mountains, with an infrastructure whose purpose is to support, inform and promote awareness and environmental education to the visitor. The common threshing-floor and collection of unique granaries are signs of a communitarian way of life that characterize this place. For whoever wishes to spend a few days, small accommodations offer all the comfort and privacy, normal of those who know how to welcome their guests.
