Redondo council includes two civil parishes and is located in Ossa mountain. This region has been inhabited since ancient times, as proved by many testimonies of a former Dolmen civilisation. Redondo is known for its good wines and diversified handicraft, whose main examples are leather products’ manufacturing, painted iron, furniture pieces and, mainly, pottery. Glass dinner sets decorated with rural life scenes are one of the landmarks of this council. Some wall vestiges have remained from the Medieval wall, namely the door Porta da Ravessa (a famous wine of a local wine cellar was named after it) and the keep. In the Reguengos direction, Valongo Castle in Montoito is a small Gothic fortress, built later, probably already in the 14th century. A former convent (São Paulo Convent) lies in the middle of Ossa mountain in an absolutely breathtaking landscape. This convent was restored and converted in a hotel, in accordance with its epoch style
