Located over the astonishing Tâmega River, the São Gonçalo Bridge is the welcoming card to the beautiful Amarante city centre. The actual construction dates from the 18th century, as in 1763 the previous building collapsed, leading to the reconstruction of that structure that probably dated from 1250. Nevertheless it is not clear if that one was also a reconstruction of a previous bridge. In fact, here passed the Roman road that linked Amarante to Guimarães and Braga, hence there were enough conditions for having here a Roman bridge previously to the medieval one. After the bridge collapse in 1763 the images of Nossa Senhora da Piedade and the Crucified Christ that were in the centre of

The temple of Lufrei, located in a valley near the confluence of two small water creeks, was once the seat of a small female monastic institute of which no traces remain. The Church, secularized in 1455, integrates the so-called “românico de resistência” [resistance Romanesque], witness of the vernacularity and popularity that such style had among rural communities in northern Portugal. Without any carved decoration, the Church is lit by narrow crevices positioned at key points of the building. The quadrangular corbels and the arrangement of the portals attest for its late execution. The interior was radically changed in Modern Age.

Parks & Nature
O Parque Florestal é um dos vários pontos de interesse em Amarante. Está localizado na margem esquerda do rio Tâmega, ocupa uma área de 5 hectáres e começou a ser construído em 1916. Para além da área florestal, o parque tem uma área com animais selvagens e aves. É mais frequentado no Verão, altura em que as pessoas podem usufruir da sombra das árvores e do contacto com o rio. Durante o inverno é um local húmido e frio, no entanto, igualmente belo.
