Potholing at Casa do Zé Sapateiro


Casa do Zé Sapateiro Potholing.
This is the activity of exploring natural cavities. It is dedicated to the study of caves, rock formations and the underground world. That of most mere mortals are completely unaware of. The proposal is a visit to the Talismã cave in Taliscas, Penas. Distancing about 8 km from Casa do Zé Sapateiro. This is an impressive cave with what is probably the largest underground river in Portugal. And in terms of size, one of the largest in the country.

The Pedra Ferida do Espinhal falls are a charming 25 m cascade that rises from the bed of the Azenha stream, along which there are several others, this one being the biggest and most beautiful. The trail must be done on foot, which allows this natural beauty, which is still known only to a few, to be visited.

Trails at Casa do Zé Sapateiro


Casa do Zé Sapateiro Trails.
In the middle of the schist village, in a setting where you can stroll to the slow rhythm of these calm villages, there are several options for some hiking. One of the proposals is the trail between Ferreira de São João and São Simão village, which is signposted. But, if you get tired, you can always arrange to drive back with the hosts.
