In the picturesque stream there is a natural swimming pool with small waterfalls, swimming and diving is possible. There are many opportunities for hiking either in the Monastery wood or in the mountains surrouding the place. There is a golf course at 18 km distance and a SPA of S. Pedro do Sul (10 km). The rich regional gastronomy is a further incentive for visitors. Monuments, medieval buildings and baroque churches all easy to reach by car. Less
