Miradouro do Monte do Faro
At the Faro Hill, one has the loveliest views of a wide part of the parish of Valença and of the neighbouring parishes, as well as of the Minho river. By the belvedere there are several chapels, one of which devoted to São Pedro de Rates, the medieval saint that protected the inhabitants from the plague. This elevation is quite visible to the east of Valença.
