It is believed that it once was an important mountain village, but nowadays, Chiqueiro is one of the smallest Schist Villages. However, it captivates visitors right from the first glance.

To stroll through the chapel, the tank and the fountain, while observing the schist houses, where people still live like they did in ancient times, and the small herds which pass through the entire village or just enjoy the magnificent landscape are simple, but truly rewarding pleasures. The village shares its History and culture with Casal Novo and Talasnal and has a strong connection with them. It is a triangle of neighbouring villages you should explore at Serra da Lousã.
