Sever do Vouga

Located on the Bank of the river Vouga and between the mountain ranges of Do and Carved, Sever do Vouga is a predominantly rural and industrial Council. Here you can find scenes of great natural beauty, where the colors of different cultures, the green of flora and the creeks that provide beautiful waterfalls and pleasant river beaches make the delight of visitors. The name Sever do Vouga, second tells the story, comes from a remarkable Visigoth Warrior – the Earl of Sevéri – which, during the struggles between the Visigoths and suevi, in the 6th century, settled here. The word Sever joined him the word Vouga, due to the river that passes here. The local cuisine is tasty and varied: from the Sever style roast veal with rice in the oven, passing by the lamprey rice, and ending with Fireworks with rapini. For dessert, try the "Kisses of Sever", the "Batteries do Vouga" and the "Nacelles do Vouga". Arts and lore can be observed in the craftsman House, where basketry, weaving, cooperage, the stonework and wooden miniatures has a prominent place.
