Veiros

Estremoz

Information

Vieiros is a peaceful small village nearby Estremoz, situated in the vast Alentejo’s region, characterized by its small rural houses and by its historic Castle.

This is quite an ancient location, with vestiges of Roman occupancy, being re-conquered from the Moors in 1217 by the Portuguese king D. Afonso the 2nd that donated this territory to the Avis Order.
In Vieiros was born the first Duke of Bragança, D. Afonso, back in 1377

This quiet lovely village presents interesting monuments such as what is left of the Castle nowadays; the Renaissance Mother Church; the São Salvador do Mundo Church probably founded in the 13th century but much transformed afterwards; the lovely Nossa Senhora do Mileu Church (13th/14th century) or even the Renaissance Pillory built in 1539.
