The pedestrian path which connects Ferraria de São João to the neighbouring village of Casal de São Simão is increasingly used.

The arrival of new residents has brought new opportunities for the village to celebrate old local traditions in popular and religious festivals in which everyone participates. The inhabitants of the village dedicate themselves to farming and herding and their houses usually have two floors: the bottom one is made of stone and used as a storage room and corral while the upper one is plastered and is used to shelter its residents. But with this unique feeling, Ferraria de São João has also been receiving many tourists who are attracted to this village because of its beauty, the excellent conditions to MTB and also because of the caves which speleology lovers like to explore.
