Visit one of the best Schist villages in Portugal and step back in time. “Schist” is a type of crystalline metamorphic stone. It is easily split, creating a flat surface. For centuries, this “horizontal” stone became the ideal building material to create weatherproof, secure houses. Today, many original homes made of schist still stand and remain occupied by the residents of the village. Also boasts a beautiful river beach a few hundred meters below the village.
