Getaway in Aldeias do Xisto

Serra da Lousã

As a family, on a romantic weekend or just to relax, discover a magical place where there is time and space to breathe and listen to nature. From Ferraria de São João walk or bike ancestral shepherd paths, go for a walk on Lousã Mountain and visit some of the region's Aldeias do Xisto. Also experience some of the traditional flavours of the region and enjoy the comfort and hospitality of the rural tourism units in restored stone houses. A trip back in time you will not soon forget!

- Transfer from Coimbra - Ferraria de São João (optional).
- Arrival at Ferraria de São João
- Short loop of Ferraria de São João (2 km).
- Visit to the village, passing through Sobreiral, the communal pens, the fertile agricultural land and the fantastic quartzite crest, from which you get an aerial perspective of the village.

DAY 2 - Casal de São Simão and Fragas de São Simão
First thing in the morning, enjoy a walk in the middle of nature in Aldeia do Xisto of Casal de São Simão. At the entrance, you will find the restaurant Varanda do Casal, where you can order lunch and taste the delicious regional delicacies or just have a drink and enjoy the terrace and the view over the village. At the same location, take the opportunity to the Aldeias do Xisto Shop. Cross the village and turn right towards the Fato stream valley. Delight yourself with the sounds and smells of the Laurissilva forest. As the route approaches Saonda, it is already on the right bank of the Alge stream, which follows alongside the route until the Brás Curado bridge. Now return along the other bank to the mills in Além da Ribeira, a small village by the river. At the end, be sure to visit the Fragas de São Simão River Beach and its magnificent waterfalls. The route is somewhat technical and takes place mostly on small trails, so footwear with grip is advised.

Enjoy your last day and relax. If you have time, be sure to visit the Louçainha River Beach or even the neighbouring Aldeia do Xisto of Gondramaz, and the remaining Aldeias do Xisto in Lousã Mountain.
