This Alentejo village is the land of one of the most illustrious Portuguese poets, Florbela Espanca. The author wrote extraordinary works of art from our literature and pioneered the feminist movement in Portugal. He managed to take away the then unknown name of the village.
Vila Viçosa is a town full of history, with a rich and enviable heritage created by man throughout the centuries. It was and still is nature that provides the raw material for the creation of varied pieces of decorative rocks. The highlight goes to marble, which has long played a key role in the county’s economy.
The region’s marble is of superior quality and internationally known. It is abundant in the region and is exploited and extracted from the approximately 160 existing quarries. One of the first places to visit in Vila Viçosa should therefore be one of these quarries. You will see how this rock is rough and how, after much work, it comes to us full of beauty in the most unexpected forms. But first, let’s know the origin of the village.
