Situated in the beautiful village of Arco de Valdevez, over the crystalline waters of the river Vez, this monument is one of the symbols of the region, part of a beautiful bucolic landscape.

According to tradition, it was close to this site that a battle was raised and from that battle was originated the Portuguese kingdom. It is said that it was such a bloody battle that hours passed the combat still the River Vez was carrying blood instead of water.
