Candal is one of the most accessible Schist Villages.

Located next to the national road which connects Lousã to Castanheira de Pêra, this small village presents its visitors with schist houses, a threshing floor, a chapel, a fountain and a public washing tank, all traces from the rural world which have been preserved. But it also offers you good company from mountain people. It is worth your while to visit it, make an effort to climb the path to reach the overlook and enjoy the stunning panoramic view over the Candal Stream.

This is the ideal place to work out your appetite before you leave to explore the landscape and monumental treasures of Serra da Lousã like the Biological Park, the Trevim or the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows.
