Chaves

Chaves – or Aquae Flaviae, as it was known by the Romans – is a small and welcoming city located in the heart of Trás-os-Montes, at an altitude of about 324 meters. Known for its medicinal waters, the Termas de Chaves, together with the Vidago spa resort, are one of the dynamic centers of the region. It is even said that in Roman times, legions came here to regain strength. Traces of the Romans' passage are visible all over the city, especially the famous Roman Bridge. The city's gastronomy is a must, as well as in all the Trás-os-Montes region... "Pastéis de Chaves", meat bread, ham, alheiras and feijoada are delicacies not to be missed!
