Carreira

District: Braga | County: Póvoa de Lanhoso | Parish: Sobradelo da Goma

Carreira Village is situated in the foothills of Monte Merouço, in Sobradelo da Goma Parish, Póvoa de Lanhoso Municipality. It is part of the “nostalgic villages” project developed by ATAHCA – Association for the Development of the Homem, Cávado and Ave Highlands, aimed at promoting the authentic villages of Minho.

Spend a few days relaxing in one of the typical Minho houses which have been restored and adapted for tourism. The scenery is an invitation to enjoy your stay, at your leisure and thoroughly admiring the countryside, full of green fields, terraces, oak groves and pine groves! Visit the Carreira water mill, which has been restored and which once ground the grain to make bread, and stop at the small chapel in Capela House.

Surrender to the natural beauty of the region, taking one of the two suggested hiking trails: the Ribeiro Queimado Hiking Itinerary or the Monte do Merouço Hiking Itinerary. Stop for a while in the rest area next to the small stream with crystal clear water and enjoy the rustic scene! You might even see a Garrano pony! Fluffy rice and beans, cozido à portuguesa and sponge cake are the typical gastronomic specialities of Carreira. Sobradelo da Goma, the parish Carreira Village is part of, has several filigree workshops, where beautiful specimens of the traditional crafts of the region are created.
