Edible Chestnut and Sincelo World Capital (5 photos)
by Ilena Lo Silver Star Critiquer/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 0 N: 141] (639)

A unique combination of climate factors, starting with the elevation of 900 meters at the top of a kind of plateau (that extends north to Penedono and Sernancelhe) and a location at the meeting point of atlantic and continental air masses.
To the east is too dry, to the west too humid, to the south and to the north too low for sincelo.
And for Martaínha, the best chestnut in the world.

Home of poet and prophet Bandarra and one of the bastions of the national independence of Portugal.
