Torre de Moncorvo is located on the North of Portugal, on the south of the northeast Trás-os-Montes region, nearby the border with Spain, on the confluence of the Sabor and Douro rivers.
The rivers Sabor and Douro are a symbol of the landscape in this region, yet not less important are the Vilariça Valley and the Reboredo Mountain.
One of the Torre de Moncorvo main highlights is the Mother Church, classified as National Heritage and considered to be the greatest religious temple of Trás-os-Montes.
