Focusing on art, culture and creativity as distinctive elements, Vila Nova de Cerveira has maintained over the years, a healthy and balanced relationship between cultural heritage and contemporary creation.

This symbolic capital led to the development of a distinctive signature - the Village of the Arts - which owes its origin to the host country's oldest Art Biennial, the Biennial of Cerveira.

Over the past three decades this village of Alto Minho has been a meeting of Portuguese and foreign artists, offering space and exceptional conditions for the event.

The Alto Minho

«...people from the Minho province are the best inhabitants of Portugal, both for their gentleness and friendliness, as well as for their jolliness; their dances and songs have already led a foreign author to compare them to the true shepherds of antiquity.»
