Freixo de Espada à Cinta
Location of Quinta de Maritávora
Freixo de Espada à Cinta is located in the Douro Demarcated Region and in the Natural Park of Douro Internacional. It is one of the most remote villages in the country, the birthplace of the poet Guerra Junqueiro. Noteworthy are the Matriz church, built in the 16th century in Manueline style, the Torre do Galo, from medieval times and the only example of a heptagonal tower in Portugal, and also the Silk Museum, a place dedicated to the tradition of silk, with artisans working alongside alive, extracting silk threads from the cocoons.
