Serra do Açor
About 8 km long, it’s a circular route that goes into the Rede Natura of the Serra do Açor to the Fajão Forest, on the slopes surrounding the Penedos de Fajão, where the landscape will amaze you.
The whole route is accompanied by an interpretive guide who will reveal some of the most charming secrets of this region.
Fajão is an old village, nestling in a picturesque bowl in the hills, between gigantic quartzite cliffs, shaped like natural ancient castles. Visits to the Monsenhor Nunes Pereira Museum, the communal oven, the public laundry and or the old primary school are highly recommended, as they tell you the history of the village.
