    Many people use what they have to transport themselves around the are of the village once they head from their house to their farm. Don't think this guy only have the tractor as a way of transportation. Farmers on this area live quite well and their big farms with cattle head are quite rich actually. Maybe BMW or Mercedes 4WD...

  • Quinta da Pantoja cows

    The main thing of this farm are the cows. This animal is very curious. When I stoped the car to make some pics they all came aside me trying to see what I was about to.

Igrejinha Warnings and Dangers

  • Giving food to animals on the road

    well...what can I say, I did it. so maybe also could you...Not just kidding about this tip. This horse was really used to humans. Is of course you notice the animal doesnt trust you dont do it. Also quick gestures are not good.

  • Bulls

    On your way to Igrejinha you can notice the large amount of herding farms there exists by the road. hundreds of cattle heads run free in the fields. These guys here look very suspicious and I bet they want a fight.

  • Water compound

    everybody knows how tricky can water barages be. Be careful if swiming in the summer. Personaly I wouldnt swim even in the summer not only because of the danger but because I don't like it very much. I prefer beach or swiming pool.

    Close look of the animal's eye. Don't try this at home. Just abroad of course. Here would be the perfect place to do it.

Igrejinha Favorites

  • Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Consolação

    Main church of Igrejinha. Igrejinha mean small church, but I cant see why they say this is a small church. Maybe due to its historic past (it was improved on the 17th and 18th century), they just build it bigger after the first main constrution on the 16th century.

    more
  • Sign of Igrejinha

    6km before the village. On this road you have lots of animals to see. Also many cork trees and farms.

    more
  • Street scene
