Sarzedas

An old town and seat of the municipality, Sarzedas still has a certain majestic feeling in its plastered houses with colour traces and large volumes, a square where a pelourinho rises, churches and even in its chapels.

An old town and seat of the municipality, Sarzedas still has a certain majestic feeling in its plastered houses with colour traces and large volumes, a square where a pelourinho rises, churches and even in its chapels. The village earned a new life when some of the community spaces like the wash-house and the Town’s Fountain were recovered and access routes were paved. Now, it’s just not the locals but also tourists who climb to the top of São Jacinto to appreciate the picturesque design of the streets and houses, the matriz church and its bell towers with three bells.

Close by, you will find the ruins of the old medieval castle, built around the same time as the village was first populated during the reign of King Sancho I and which remind us how old this magical place really is.
