Vineyard village of Salzedas

Tarouca
Description
The Salzedas name comes from the Latin Saliceta, meaning “Salgueiral”, abundant vegetation on the banks of Varosa River, which flows quite there. It is a very old settlement. Here have passed through Lusitanos and Romans, Suevi and Visigoths and, later, Muslims.

The genesis of its history goes back to the place that today takes the name of Abadia Velha and its town grew around the Convent of Santa Maria de Salzedas.

The large ex-libris is the Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria de Salzedas erected by D. Teresa Afonso, wife of Egas Moniz, schoolmaster of D. Afonso Henriques. With Romanesque structure, completely renovated in the eighteenth century, and its sacred church in the thirteenth century, is one of the richest and most emblematic monasteries of Portugal.

The Tarouca Municipality invites you to discover the Varosa Valley.
