MORE INFORMATION

Number of inhabitants: 126

Description of the place: This typical village was until recent years quite hard to reach, for the trip to Piódão was actually a true adventure, crossing Açor mountain through clay roads. This isolation enabled the preservation of cultural features that date back to the Middle Age and a highly community-based social scheme, threatened by an exodus of inhabitants in recent times. The houses in Piódão are placed in a quite interesting way in a natural amphitheatre. The applied construction material is the schist, used in the houses, roofs and street pavements. In contrast to these dark colours, the local church is painted in an immaculate white. The residential area is surrounded by an immense green landscape.

Points of interest: Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, rebuilt in 1890; some local handicraft stores
