Welcome to VISEU
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG
eurocityguide.com - eurocityguide.com


Information about VISEU Viseu is situated in the centre of Portugal. It lies in the region of Beira Interior and Beira Litoral, the capital of which is Coimbra. Viseu is located on a high plateau, and provides a spectacular view over the countryside around it. The heart of the town is medieval and its surroundings are vineyards and pine-forests. Today, its main importance is as the centre of the Dão wine-growing region, where crisp white wines and some of Portugal's most popular full-bodied reds are produced. The highest point of the city is the huge Praça da Sé, a paved square in front of the cathedral. You can also visit the Igreja da Misecórdia, with its white Baroque façade, and the Cathedral, with its weighty twin-towered Romanesque base on which a succession of generations have made their mark. Behind its façade lies an elegantly simple Gothic interior featuring a two-storey cloister and fine azulejo glazed tiles in the north chapel. One of the greatest treasure of Viseu, though, is the adjacent Museu Grão Vasco. In the 16th Century, the city already had a group artistic community, and an art school was founded (Grão Vasco was an alumnus). Many monuments were also built at this time. From the 17th Century to the middle of the 19th Century, many more palaces and churches were built, turning Viseu into a princely Baroque town.
