With a riverside facing the Douro River and covering two areas classified as Natura 2000 - the Paiva River and the Montemuro Mountain, the municipality has unique natural values, with special emphasis on the richness of biodiversity and the unique beauty of the landscape.

Cinfães is also a land of high historical and cultural values. The pre-Celtic megalithic vestiges prove an occupation that reaches 5 millennia. And from the orders issued by the Church in the Middle Ages sober, robust and valuable Romanesque temples have survived up to this day.

The multisecular foundation and the historical relevance of Cinfães involve personalities like D. Egas Moniz, who left from here nominated as lord of Ribadouro; D. Afonso Henriques, first king of Portugal, who spent his childhood here; and General Alexandre Serpa Pinto, son of noble families, who left from here to discover Africa and here he returned to share his knowledge about it with the world.
