Monção


Municipality of Monção

The promotion of our county takes different forms. On the one hand, recovering and divulging its vast and interesting monumental heritage. On the other hand, organizing structured initiatives with the capacity to mobilize residents and attract visitors.

The Monção and Melgaço Granfondo, is inserted in this last chapter. Scheduled for September 23, 2018, it promises to make the Sub-Region of Monção and Melgaço the ideal place for two wheels lovers. Both professionals and amateurs.
With this event, included in a circuit of cycling competitions, at national level, we celebrate the Alvarinho wine, the noblest of all the castes, we develop the sport component, with the local population, and we potentiate the tourist strand in our territory.

The Monção and Melgaço Granfondo is not only a sporting event. Due to the high organizational competence, the significant number of entries expected and the media coverage of the competition, it is undoubtedly a strong contribution to the valorization of our land. I would say, a strong pedal stroke to strengthen tourism in Monção.
I am convinced that we will have an extraordinary journey, in sporting and economic terms, with the consequent dynamization of traditional commerce, hotels and restaurants.

You can rest assured that everyone will be greeted with an easy smile and friendly gesture. People from Monção are like this. Molded in simplicity and authenticity. They know how to receive. And they will surely make you feel like wanting to come back. And you will always be welcome.
