The municipality of Valpaços was founded in the nineteenth century, although it is thought that this region was already inhabited in prehistoric times and later occupied by the Romans, as is in fact proved by the many remains to be found here from that period.

It is a fertile region and naturally agriculture plays a major part in the local economy, with particular attention being drawn to the production of cherries and wine.

As far as the town's cuisine is concerned, amongst the most popular items are the local sausages and the Valpaços Easter cake, for which the region is particularly famous.
