VILA NOVA DE FOZ CÔA
Situated in Trás-os-Montes country, in the Quente (Hot) region, so called for the blazing heat of the summer months. The other region, Terra Fria (the Cold Land), corresponds to the Montesinho National Park area. This small place became famous following the discovery of rock engravings on the banks of the River Côa which date back to the Late Palaeolithic era.

The area has been classified as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
