Mêda

In the mediaeval period, Meda was the setting for hard-fought skirmishes between Christians and Muslims, since at that time it was essentially a border town. Its watchtower (formerly known as the Torre de Vigia, but referred to nowadays as the Torre do Relógio - the clock-tower) was one of the most important strategic points for the defence of the region, being complemented by the nearby castles of Longroiva and Marialva.

Nowadays, Meda is a quiet town, where the main activity is farming, with wine-making being the major activity.
