Avis played a leading role in the history of Portugal and even gave its name to one of the four dynasties. The montado dominates the driest parts, but the abundance of water lurks with every kilometer traveled: the Maranhão reservoir has 3 arms of water that extend through the municipality creating unique corners. We will tell you stories of enchanted Moors, forbidden fruits, eagles and even werewolves. We will discover what factors influenced the choice of the location of the Castle and the Convent, the epicenter of the entire region that extends from the hill of the Order of Avis to distant locations, in neighboring municipalities and beyond.
