Trofa

The municipality of Trofa, located on the northern edge of the District of Porto, enjoys excellent accessibility. Is integrated into the Industrial Heritage Route of Vale do Ave and, despite being a recent Council, the historic route of Trofa is over and before the formation of the nationality. To testify the fact that are the dozens of axes of bronze axes found in São Martinho de Bougado. Be sure to visit the Castro of Presendieu, located at a Foothill in the Sierra de Santa Eufémia, where you can see archaeological remains of great importance. The feast of our Lady of Sorrows, which is held on the third Sunday of the month of August is the busiest event of the entire County, where they lack the traditional pilgrimage of Minho, the procession, the bands of music and animation with Fireworks. In gastronomy, the prominence goes straight to the traditional porridge sarrabulho, the caldo verde, Fireworks and the roast suckling pig, much sought after in some establishments in the region. To those who seek the discovery of these flavors, we recommend a visit to the handicraft and gastronomy, taking place annually in the fourth week of July.
