Turquel Overview

Turquel is a old settlement created in the 12th century and officially recognized in the 14th. It grew to a small city, whose dominant activities are the production of decorative stones and agriculture (excellent fruits).
With great tradition in music, the city got the nickname of "Aldeia do hóquei em patins (the Village of Roller Hockey)" because it is for decades one of the biggest schools in the world for that sport.
Historic signs are vanishing, but the main church still keeps the original Manueline door.
