Viseu district

Viseu district in 3 quick visits


To see Viseu district in general

This is one of my less visited districts. I noticed that Viseu is a fast developing town, Tarouca has an interesting monastery, S. Pedro do Sul a spa, and beautiful Lamego a charming church watching the town form above.

Honestly, until recently, I never found a reason to GO there, and passing by was always rather quick.

​It was easy to solve – in a couple of trips I visited Caramulo, Lapa, Manhouce, PenedonoPinhel, Rans, Tarouca (with S. João de Tarouca), Santa Comba Dão, Santa Cruz da Trapa, Sernancelhe and Tondela.

Now I think that I started to know something about Viseu district.



In 70 years, I only made a quick visit to Lamego.

In the last two I went there 3 times, always finding new reasons for interest.

A beautiful city, with the “world” of the Douro at hand, deserves every visit.

São João de Tarouca

Viseu district

A magnificent monastery, lost in a remote place. It is a somewhat time-consuming detour, but São João de Tarouca is really worth it.


Viseu district

Although the best of Tarouca is a few kilometers away (São João), the city also deserves some time to visit. There was a party when we were there and some visits were very restricted, starting with the church of São Pedro.



Skipped for a longtime for no particular reason, I decided to make a large detour expressly to see the city.

It was a short visit, but enough to catch a general idea of Viseu, that I will express in its own page, that will be enriched with the posts of another visit a few weeks ago, in my attempt to enrich the knowledge of Viseu district.

São Pedro do Sul

Vila Pouca de Aguiar

I’ had been in São Pedro do Sul just once, many years ago, and quickly passing by at sunset.

No time to do see and do more than a picture with the friends.

Recently I repeated the visit, sleeping there for one night. Calm, nice, Interesting!



Just a quick visit, which allowed you to be captivated by the typicality of Sernancelhe, easy and pleasant to walk around.



Tondela was also seen running a little. A good preparation, and the concentration in a small area of the main attractions, facilitated the visit.
