Abundant archaeological remains, ancient monuments and fine manor-houses are some of the motives of interest for those visiting Tabuaço, although the county's main attraction is undoubtedly its natural patrimony, characterized by the contrast between mountains and valleys, between green vineyards cultivated on slopes and the calm blue waters of the river Távora.

Stone pillories such as those of Arcos, Granja do Tedo, Sendim and Valença do Douro, as well as the Romanesque churches of São Pedro das Águias, Nossa Senhora de Sabrosa and Barcos (12th century), invite visitors to discover the county's historical and religious heritage.

The zone's archaeological importance is visible at the ruins of fortified settlements (such as those of Longa, Sabroso or São Mamede), at the pre-historic sanctuary of Cabeço das Pombas or at the burial sites of Passo Frio and Sendim, among many other remains which have been discovered.

The county offers a gastronomy based on traditional skills and flavours: although its main speciality is a famous stuffed kid with oven-baked rice, there is also an excellent cured ham, a delicious bola de carne (a pie of bread dough with cured meats) and river fish in vinegar sauce. For dessert, the chestnut cakes and bolo-rei of Tabuaço (a kind of fruit-cake) are also popular.

The terraced vineyards of the county, integrated in the Douro region, produce Port of quality and also good table wines.
