Aigra Nova

Village and more. Here the friendliness is as contagious as the landscape is serene.

Get involved in the do Ecomuseu das Tradições do Xisto project and visit its various centers. With simple urban fabric, low construction and based on shale, Aigra Nova is divided into three small streets, which cross it.

The spring and the mild climate are conducive to agricultural practice and vast pastures. In this living village there are vegetable gardens, cattle, donkeys and many activities that promise to surprise.

Inserted in the Aldeias do Xisto network, this group of four villages in the Concelho de Góis – Comareira, Aigra Nova, Aigra Velha and Pena - is integrated in a panoramic road that will connect them to Trevim, the highest point of Serra da Lousã (1204 meters altitude), Santo António da Neve and other villages located on the opposite side of the mountain. It is with eyes set high that we thank the existence of these memory villages and their recent and progressive transformation into future villages, calling for each of them a new soul that the beautiful shale stones, by themselves, cannot to contain.

It is mandatory to stop here and get involved in the Eco-Museum Tradições do Xisto project and visit its various Centers. Sympathy is as contagious as the landscape is serene. It is good to know that, at the bottom of these valleys, deer and wild boar continue to survive undisturbed, as if protected from the world.
