The Region

The Village of Pitões das Júnias

Away from the bustle of the world in a deep and silent isolation, the village seems asleep in the comfort of a beautiful valley of Mourela plateau, between craggy reliefs of Geres.

Their livelihood is the most thrifty: but there are milk, delicious potatoes, fragrant honey, fresh pure water and a climate that serves further to "cure" the most delicious hams and cold cuts from the region.

Not far from the village in a impressive nook, remains the ruins of a modest benedictine convent, whose foundation seems dated from the century IX.

After a half-hour hike, can be found in the mountainside a beautiful waterfall of crystalline water, which falls between two cliffs in a trap surrounded by trees and bushes.


Abrigos de Pitões

These "shelters" or mountain lodges where you can enjoy sweeping views between narrow valleys and fearful peaks of the National Park Peneda-Geres, remain in do Coto Street, in the village of Pitões das Júnias, a typical mountain village in the intermediate zone of Geres and Barroso to 1164m altitude.

The shelters have basic amenities of modern life, but are specially prepared for those who enjoy the simple life of the mountain and the nature.
