Quinta do Convento da Franqueira
Taste the 'Vinho Verde' of Convento da Franqueira, a 16th Century
monastery built with the stones from the nearby ruins of Faria castle.
The English owners have restored the 'Convento' with charm and imagination,
creating a comfortable family home. The lush greenery of Franqueira's
gardens and vineyard, and the spring-fed swimming pool, hidden behind
a graceful 17th Century 'fonte', provide the visitor with a perfect
setting to unwind.
