Aldeias Históricas de Portugal



With its hexagonal fort in the shape of a star, the Historical Village of Almeida makes an impression as soon as you arrive. The Douro International Natural Park (UNESCO heritage) and the Côa River Valley make up its natural surroundings. A wide and diverse range of cuisine is to be found in Almeida, including more sophisticated recipes such as meatballs and green eggs, as well as traditional regional dishes in which pork is seasoned and succulent in soups, fried dishes, stews, migas served as a famous Burzigada (banquet) and sausages, particularly tripe sausages.
