Gastronomy

The typical delicacies of Minho in Barcelos assume even more regional and traditional characteristics, branded by the intense flavours that are a tribute to the art of well cooking.

Landscapes

Barcelos is a territory filled with beauty and natural landscapes provided by the curious reunion between the river Cávado and the territory that borders its banks. The scenic hills stand out from the landscape and provide view of the entire valley of Cávado, Neiva and Este leaving the coastline and the Atlantic at its feet.

Festival of the Crosses

The festival of the crosses, in early May, is the first great festival of Minho and is also the portrait of the authentic Barcelos in its most original traditions, be it religious, ethnographic or cultural. May third is devoted to Senhor Bom Jesus da Cruz and is a municipal holiday in Barcelos. The celebration usually lasts for 5 days, including the first and the third of May.
