Provesende is a historic village known for its wine production and for being one of the most beautiful in the Douro wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The village shows the traditional granite houses and narrow streets, and that is enhanced with its location, on a hilltop with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.
Passing by Meixedo
Until I passed through this village in my way to Montalegre, I had never heard its name. I made a photo, and when I searched for references, I was surprised to find no less than three villages in Portugal with this uncommon name – one in Viana do Castelo, another in Tarouca, and… this one in Montalegre.
Which is the least interesting?
I will reply after discovering the other two (supposing that I will find them), but, reading I found that there were some administrative aggregations that indicate the progressive disappearance of some villages in the interior.
Bar and museum
Right in the center of the small village there is also a small bar, which advertises the sale of handicrafts, and assumes itself as a museum.
Curiosities of the small and forgotten villages awakened by the opportunity called “tourism”.
