Água Formosa

Relive ancient traditions in the shale village of Água Formosa. The houses, which are mainly built with shale and follow traditional features, are revealed amongst the nature near the clean stream of Galega. The town took over a slope in an irregular pattern. Only people and animals can pass on the narrow streets, in an ambience which guides our imagination to the stories of the people who had inhabited the village. 

Part of the Shale Village Programme, Água Formosa is the entrance door to the mysterious and enchanted shale territory for those who come from the south of the country.
