  • In a region that is known to be of very ancient origin, it is said that there were once two castles here, one by the name of Aguiar de Sousa and the other known as the castle of Pena. When the Moors occupied this region, they tried to invade the latter castle, but did not succeed because it was defended so heroically. This is why it was considered "loyal" (fiel), so that it became known as the castle of Penafiel, a name which then spread to the rest of the area.
