If you are already sold on the idea of packing up and enjoying all that rural Portugal has to offer, you may be thinking: why Melgaço?
There are more reasons and details then we (and you, probably) have time for, so we’ll stick with the short version:
Inspiration At Every Corner
Being the northernmost town in Portugal, it is also one of the oldest. In fact, its people took the side of the first Portuguese king D. Afonso Henriques in his war for independence from the Kingdom of Léon. It was by his hand that the construction of Melgaço’s Castle began in 1170. And did we mention monuments from Roman times?
Safe to say that you don’t get to be around for so long without getting some stories under your belt.
So be it from the architecture to its great link to the founding of our country, every corner of Melgaço seems to be infused with historical and cultural richness.
And if pure history is not your cup of tea, know that there is also a vast tradition on legends, fables and fantastical tales. Witches, princesses, creatures of wonder – there is no shortage of excitement near the border.
Just going on with your daily life can put you in the way of the next element that inspires you in whatever it is that you do. After all, creativity is growing in importance in all sectors, and it’s nothing more than connecting ideas. Here there is plenty for the taking.
Come For The History, Stay For The Food (And Wine!)
Feeding the mind is all well and good, but when it comes to the actual food, you may actually fall in love with the place.
Portugal has a country-wide culture of great gastronomy, no questions there. The North, however, just takes everything to a different level. And Melgaço is not one to stay behind. Make no mistake, they mean business.
Oh, and there’s wine too, as if the food wasn’t enough. White and sparkling wine production has been a staple of the region for many years, so you know there will always be something great with which you can toast to your work achievements or the great community of people surrounding you.
Get Your Adventure Mode On
What’s left to do after a great meal followed closely by great drinks? Getting moving, of course!
