Viewpoint of Cerveira’s Castle

Vila Nova de Cerveira
Description

From the Castle, it is possible to observe the contrast between the gentle landscapes of the final stretch of the Minho river and the terrain of irregular granite masses that form the hills of the Serra da Gávea. The fortification, that still preserves the medieval nucleus, dominates a small-fortified town of the 14th century. From the bulwark defensive enforcement, dictated from the Portuguese Throne War of the XVII and XVIII centuries, there are only a few traces left, the ones that didn't obstruct the urban growing of the village. Here, the river Minho slowly traverses a broad and open valley separating the lands of Vila Nova de Cerveira and Goyan, her historic Spanish opponent. The gentleness of the topography favored the development of farming and fishing activities, and therefore the human occupation. In these areas they perfected the fishing of Lampreia, Shad and Eel, activities that in the pasta were of extreme importance for the local population. One can still appreciate the recently rehabilitated traditional fishing pier that supported these activities.
