:: From Mateus to Muscatel, Casa de Mateus was built in the first half of the 18th Century by António José Botelho Mourão (1688-1746), and was elected a National Monument in 1911. The architectural design of the house, ex-libris of the Portuguese baroque, is attributed to the great Italian architect Nicolau Nasoni and represents an architectural reference in Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro regions.
Favaios is a vineyard village in the municipality of Alijó, located on the north bank of the Douro river, famous for its muscatel wine, produced from local muscat grapes, and Favaios Bread, colloquially known as Wheat Four Corners.
