Pedrógão Pequeno

In places where schist is King, granite is also important. Pedrógão is the outcrop of granite which has provided stones to the stonework of many doors and windows of traditional local houses and has helped baptizing Pedrógão Pequeno.

During the 1950s and 60s, the population of the village increased exponentially because the Cabril Dam was built and nowadays it has been revived again. The Cabril Philippine Bridge, the Nossa Senhora das Águas Feras Chapel, the Nossa Senhora da Confiança Mountain and, finally, the Rainha do Zêzere restaurant are some of the attractions which, along with the beauty of this village, where stones hide behind white plasters, justify a visit to this small place in Central Portugal.
