MORE INFORMATION

Number of inhabitants: 2000

Description of the place: Alpedrinha is a small village of high historical value, set in the middle of pine trees and orchards. It is located 500m high in the south slope of Gardunha mountain range. Several archaeological findings (coins, stone fragments) account for the existence of a former Roman village in the region, known as “Petratinia”. This historical village was council headquarters until 1675. The streets are paved with big stones. This village has many fountains and drinking fountains, since there is plenty of water in the region. The fountains of D. João V, Fome (Hunger) and Leão (Lion) are worth highlighting, as well as the pillory (known as Lugar da Forca/ hanging place), former Town Hall house with wide verandas and iron bars, and several manor houses.
