Along these two rivers were born some of the most beautiful Monasteries of the Order of Cister. One of the first to be built on the Iberian Peninsula, in the 12th century, was the Monastery of St. John of Tarouca.

With an altitude between 500 and 800 meters, the morphological characteristics of the terrain, a cold and harsh climate in the winter and hot and dry in summer, make these unique lands, a demarcated region of wine and sparkling wine production.
