Felgueira

District: Aveiro | County: Vale de Cambra | Parish: Arões

Traditions speak louder in Felgueira, a place where old habits still play an important role. In Arões Parish, in Vale de Cambra, Felgueira was able to preserve customs and appearances, such as in the slate roofed granite houses and the stone paths. The beautiful landscapes of Freita mountain embrace this cluster of houses that deserves an attentive visit. Stroll along the narrow streets and look closely at all the details that surround you. Here, tradition is in the very air you breathe!

Farming, much of it on terraces, gives a unique colour to the area, which can also be seen from one of the village’s many traditional or forest hiking routes, all signposted. Don’t forget to cool down on the banks of the Cabrum River, which runs through the village. But this is not only a village to be observed. Here there is life and celebration of the various day-to-day and cultural initiatives, which you can also take part in, promoted by the Felgueira Sports and Cultural Association, a dynamic group that helps preserve the cultural customs and habits of the village.

Annually, there are two religious feasts of note: the feast of São Tiago and the feast of Nossa Senhora da Liberação. In cuisine, you can’t go wrong with two traditional dishes, Arouquesa veal and Gralheira kid, two of the dishes served in the village restaurant, Mira Freita. Near this venue of delights, you will also find a handicrafts exhibition and sales centre, where you will be able to choose a souvenir of this visit to take home.
