Tourism opportunities in the area:


RIVER BEACHES

– This area of Portugal, although away from the coast, has a great variety of river beaches (praias fluviais) where you can swim in clear fresh rivers or lakes, and come away with no sand covered sunscreen!
Some are located in small stone villages, others are in more secluded places but all offer a great place to enjoy the countryside and cool off during the very warm summers. They are all different and we have half a dozen within a short driving distance from the three Marias. There is even one that has a swimming pool – Praia Das Rocas, with a wave machine, great for children.
– Mosteiro is just 5 minutes in the car or 20 minutes on foot. It has big shady trees, a cool place to swim, a snack bar for a chilled jug of sangria and a very relaxed atmosphere where both locals and visitors like to spend the afternoons when it’s too hot to be anywhere else.


SCHIST VILLAGES

– These beautiful stone villages are dotted around the area, often tucked away between hill slopes and via windy lanes. They are all different and some sell locally produced handicrafts and offer food and accommodation.
– The nearest to us is Casal de São Simão – only a 15 minute drive. The restored stone houses are really beautiful and you can wander down the valley to the water falls and rocks at Fragas, with clear water to swim in and even a café for a quick drink or snack. There is also a restaurant at the top serving traditional regional food.
– If you want to explore more schist villages take our guide book out for the day or download the app “aldeias do xisto” on your smartphone.


LOCAL MARKETS AND FAIRS

– One of the things we like to do is to visit local markets. Pedrógão Grande has one on Monday mornings, where people meet to buy and chat. Fresh fruit and vegetables, grown locally are for sale as well as freshly made goat cheese and stalls specialising in random rusty garden tools and big pants (not on the same stall). You have to visit to see! Check out the Pedrógão app “Municipio de Pedrógão Grande”.
– Figueiró dos Vinhos is a little bigger and is every Saturday morning, same sort of goods but more variety.
– For a really local experience go to Vila Facaia, just along the road, their market is on Sundays and although small it’s worth calling in.
– Fleamarkets: There is a monthly market at Miranda do Corvo, about 30 minutes away, first Sunday of every month. You can wander for hours looking at Portuguese bric-a-brac, as well as second hand books (various languages) and plants and produce
