Fortificação da Praça de Valença

Forts, Castles and Ramparts

In Valença, history is recorded in granite rocks. Two thousand years of memories that tell memorable tales of Portugal and Spain. The Fortress complex is of unique military architecture, along with the beauty of the space, the grandiosity of the walls and monuments. A gem candidate for UNESCO World Heritage Site. Valença is an experience that leaves its mark while traversing its streets, the guard footpaths, the moats and the small corners. Feel like a warrior, fighting battles within these walls, and let yourself be seduced by the panorama of watchtowers in this land where the river Minho brings Portugal and Spain together.
