Casa de Água Formosa

Casa de Água Formosa

Água Formosa is a schist village well preserved that is worth by its whole. Here time seems to have stopped. From there you may known as water was the engine of a whole way of life: streams, wells, springs, mines, dams ... and water mills for grinding cereals and oil mills running by water ... lovely! Nearby we have several fluvial beaches and the geodesic center. There are museums to visit in Vila de Rei and an exciting cuisine to taste where we highlight the local sausages, cheese and honey.
