The Village


Today, Celorico de Basto’s highland features are perfectly merged with its ever so urban village. Characterized by many green and landscaped spaces, in the heart of the municipality you can enjoy the Freixieiro River Banks Recreational Park, with its pleasant river area and refreshing waterfalls, the lake and its animals, being crossed by several bridges and adorned by some skillfully mills recovered. It has also a children’s park, a sports ground, picnic park, bar, restaurant and a modern camping site. Leaving the park, you’ll be lead to the very popular Prof. Doutor Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa Municipal Library, installed in a magnificent 18th century manor house that has been restored with the purpose of housing this emblematic space. Coupled with the library, the Centro Cultural Prof. Doutor Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, a building with modern architecture inaugurated in 2015, is the ideal place to present musical shows, seminars, symposiums, theater, cinema, artistic exhibitions among other events. Nearby, you’ll also find the Market and the Municipal Swimming Pool, as well as the modern buildings that house the Tourism Booth and City Hall, a setting that is balanced by the nobility of old City Hall (Prado Manor House). This 19th century manor house has a much older keep (18th century) and a splendid garden, both worth of a visit.
