Walking Path

Its strong rural character, the existing heritage along the entire route and the biodiversity it displays throughout make the Comeixoperra Route a particularly pleasant walk. Besides the various springs and springs, streams and landscapes with clear views, the Holm oaks of Poço das Talhas justify, by itself, this walk.

Within the Union Parishes of Mação, Aboboreira and Penhascoso, there are mobile networks available throughout the route, besides an emergency and rescue plan, with the marking of distress beacons (SOS) duly identified, thus ensuring the safety of the pedestrian.

Natural Heritage

Between valleys and mountains we can find some specimens of a small tree already rare in the municipality, the cornalheira, and also observe cork oaks and strawberry trees, among other native species, while on the banks of streams grow shrubs like gilbardeiras and heras. On the other hand, in the pine forest areas, we find the gorse, the carqueja or the myrtle. Eagles like the pavement or the round-winged eagle, or even the porpoise that nests here in the warm seasons, are often sighted in this area by walkers. In fact, many species of animals, including insects, inhabit this region. We highlight, for example, the arbutus butterfly or the wonder butterfly, among many other species.

Cultural Heritage

In terms of built heritage, Travessa do Encalhão stands out, reminding us of the alleyways of the famous schist villages, the area of Poço das Talhas, the old watermills zealously recovered and where today it is possible for us to watch the milling of cereals, the small dam of Cabril, the old Fountain of Diving and the Fountain of Ribeiro, among others.

Besides the extensive existing patrimony in the Queixoperra Route, it is possible to observe different types of landscapes and different ecosystems typical of this geographical area. Finally, we also highlight the existence of a diverse geology, with special emphasis on the Marmitas das Azenhas (geossítio) and the fossil tracks in Serra do Carvalhal.
