Piódão is a bit far village that offers the possibility to contemplate the rural Portugal in all its glory. It is a traditional village located in Arganil, within the Coimbra District, enclosed over a valley with terraces, in a beautiful isolated mountain range with vertiginous summits, deep trimmed valleys and a virgin wooded area known as Serra de Açor Mountains.

Until the decade of 1970, this quiet and picturesque village could just be accessed by foot or horse, and it currently looks like a place lost in time.

Its houses, made of schist stone and grey slate, go down from the terraces to the Largo Cónego Manuel Fernandes Nogueira, where the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Conceição Church is located.

 

From it, is worth visiting the Piódão Museological Centre.

This parish is communicated with the nearby cities of Foz d´Egua (6.3 km, 2 hours round trip) and Chãs d’Egua (4km 1h per way) by a very well signaled framework of hiking routes.

A good date to visit this village is by the end of June of the beginning of July, since it is when the Santos Populares no Piódão Festivities are celebrated. There is a mass dedicated to the Saint Patron São Pedro do Açor, with a religious procession, a dance and a handicraft fair.
