Situated in a slope of Montemuro Mountain in the right margin of Paiva river, the town of Casto Daire is placed at the top of a 568m high mount. Its name derives from an old fort hill (“castro” in Portuguese) that existed in the highest spot of this place, now occupied by the parish church. One of the oldest monuments in the council is the imposing 12th century Romanic Ermida Church, also called “Templo das Siglas” (“Mason’s marks’ temple), because the peculiar inscriptions. In the municipality, several noble houses deserve a special look, such as Casa dos Fidalgos da Cerca, mentioned by writer Camilo Castelo Branco in his literary work “Love of Perdition”, or Casa dos Aguilares. Visitors can not miss the Municipal Museum with a collection of ethnographical and local archaeology pieces. We recommend a walk to the river beach Folgosa or a relaxing stay in Termas do Carvalhal thermal stations, located between the basins of Vouga and Paiva rivers, for all the persons who love to be in contact with nature.
