Vila Nova de Foz Coa

Castelo Velho de Freixo de Numão

Monuments | Military Architecture

A monumental site of the Chalcolithic, it is implanted on a spur overlooking the secondary valleys of the rivers Douro and Côa, with wide landscape domain. In its most monumental phase (second half of the 3rd millennium BC), it had the shape of a closed elliptical enclosure around a central turret surrounded by various structures. Although its mud walls reached 2/3m in height, only its stone bases were preserved.
