    Some important Portuguese personalities were born in Sabrosa.

    Fernão de Magalhães (Ferdinand Magellan as it is named worldwide) was one of them. Magellan was born in 1480 and its greatest achievement was the fact that he planned the first trip to circumnavigate the globe (1519 to 1522).

    Miguel Torga (1907-1995), probably not known outside Portugal, is the other personality. He was a famous Portuguese writer and poet who was born near Sabrosa. He wrote some poems about this beautiful area.
