Vagos council comprises 11 civil parishes and is located in the coastal line. The first vestiges of human presence date back to 1088. Its history is deeply related to Santa Maria d Vagos Hermitage. It received the “foral” (Royal document) by the hands of D. Manuel in 1514. On Monday after Pentecost Sunday, an important pilgrimage and procession is held in Vagos. Vagueira beach is another must-see attraction, where we can still watch the ancient fishing show . The Town Hall viewpoint offers a view over Aveiro ria (drowned river valley) and inland mountains.
