São Cristovão de Nogueira Bedroom

It is on the slopes of the Douro that is the parish of S. Cristóvão de Nogueira, so named due to its orago. It borders the parish of Cinfães and Santiago de Piães, fitting on the flanks of Montemuro and descending, through valleys and hills, to the Douro River.

With about 18.57 km² of area, the parish of S. Cristóvão de Nogueira presents itself as a markedly rural land, where its economic activities are based on agriculture. It is of an irrefutable tourist and landscape wealth, evident in its built heritage, such as the city of S. Paio, the village of Peso, the chapel of Cádiz and its Mother Church, as well as the beauty that the Carrapatelo Dam gives to its riverside area.

The reorganization of the territory, in the second spindle of the eleventh century, is due to Ferdinand the Great who made the conquest of the Castles of this region. Places and parishes are beginning to be structured. Pre-national Christian worship is present in the invocation of ancient martyrs, such as the patron saint St. Christopher and St. Lawrence (in Vilar). The parish is of constitution prior to the thirteenth century and the place called Church was the properly called Nogueira, toponym that today has only the reality of designation of the parish.

It offers a magnificent pedestrian walk through the dense green vegetation and the old ruins of mills to the maintenance circuit and enchants by all the magnificent religious and natural heritage, a piece of nature that seems to be taken from a fairy tale.
