When we look up the mountain called Serra do Açor, which is 1349 metres high and is situated in Arganil, our eyes are dazzled by the beautiful landscape.

The terraces show the know-how and entrepreneurship of the people.The water flows through sluices and when the heat comes, it is shared, still obeying the ancient rules.

The Mata da Margaraça is in the protected scenery zone. It is classified as a Biogenetic Reserve. Amongst the species of the primitive caducifoliate forest we find the delicate Lily of the Martagão, the imperial surprise of Solomon’s seal and when the cold arrives, the hollies continue to decorate themselves in red.
