    Manhouce is a lovely old town. Full of granite houses and set in a lusty valley it is known by the singing of its women. The village grew because there was an ancient route from Porto to Viseu. It is a very old town and it was once considered the 2nd most typical of Portugal (today it is less characteristical due to progress). Although the town is nice for me the best is the river and the many poços, small lagoons where the water stops and where there are small waterfalls.

    Well what can I say of Fujaco. I thought it would be a completely waste of time. But it wasn't. It was actually a very interesting place to go. The village has absolutely nothing. It doesn't have a supermarket, nor a restaurant, a coffee or a gas station, nothing. And it is full of old people and goats everywhere. And then there are this charming houses and verrrrryyy steep streets (like nothing i have seen in my life, you have to grab to the banister to climb). But the old people climb it like they were piece of cake. Is it possible that I'm getting old?

    Aldeia da Pena is a small village in the bottom of a mountain. The village is all covered in local stone, has a tourist store and a bar and that is pretty much it. There are many typical products offered by them in there. The village is known by the place where the dead killed the living. The village didn't had a cemetery so everytime anyone died they had to take the body out of the village through the steep road. In one of those times, the man that was carrying the coffin slipped and it fell on his head killing him. Not exactly the zombie story you were expecting, lol.

    Besides the things in São Pedro do Sul area, don't forget to visit the beautiful town of Vouzela and its pastries, the amazing area of Arouca with its monastery and waterfalls, the beautiful waterfalls of Sever do Vouga, the Caramulo Mountain and the beautiful city of Viseu.
