Three kilometres away, you will find the highest spot in Serra da Lousã: the quiet village of Aigra Velha. With one single street, this small village is the ideal place to be far away from everything.

Apart from a handful of well-preserved houses in a defensive shape, some of which can be rented, there’s nothing more except for cattle and apparently endless land all around. It’s not rare to see a dear or boars near-by. Wolves, which once forced people to build internal connections between the houses, have left this land. Find shelter here and listen to the old stories left by caravans of traders before you leave to discover Penedos de Góis, the Oitava Forest Park and Ribeira da Pena.
