The Cossourado fortified settlement is, because of its antiquity and the many valuable artefacts that were discovered there, one of the most important bulwarks of roman culture in Alto Minho. Hidden under the earth, they survived the severity of time and once again saw light, thanks to the work of archaeologists. The existence of two cabins recreates the houses of this village.
