At few metres of the road E.N.102, already at the surroundings of Vila Nova de Foz Côa, the urban area of the Chão d’Ordem Farm is an integrant part of a landscape where the calmness of the Beira matches the dignity of the Upper Douro, natural qualities that the Knights Templars and afterwards the Knights of the Order of Christ had already discovered and appreciated.
The Knights of the Temple and afterwards the Knights of the Order of Christ, tired of the works at Presuria, searched for warming and silent environments. Nowadays, with a type of life not less worn away and more and more complicated, it is a need to enjoy places like this one, where we can live at the quiet rhythm of Nature.
A resting environment is a gift from the heaven. And so that the quietness can be a state of soul, the scenery, simple and welcoming, cannot help matching.
It is this, truly, “the jewel of the Knights Templars”.
