Campo Benfeito

District: Viseu | County: Castro Daire | Parish: Gosende

Campo Benfeito Village is in Gosende Parish in Castro Daire. Situated in the heart of Montemuro mountain, Campo Benfeito has a unique natural environment that is worth seeing! Nature and culture unite, marked by the typical rural nature of a village that has always been linked to agriculture. Embraced by the Montemuro mountain, the village still lives in the traditions inherited from the past. This heritage is conspicuous in the architecture of the houses, built using regional granite.

It is worth taking a leisurely stroll through the village - you can take advantage and enjoy the friendliness of the people of Campo Benfeito - past the viewpoint, where you can see the pillory, but also near the streams, where the water is clean and crystal clear and, on hot days, enjoy the cool shade of the oaks and alders. The typical mountain mills, built in granite and covered with thatched roofs, are a local landmark that cannot be missed. This village is also rich in terms of culture: there are regular plays and the Altitudes Festival takes place every year, which hosts the Serra do Montemuro Regional Theatre Group of the Fôjo Cultural, Sports and Recreational Association.

Religion is also important to the people from Gosende Parish: several religious feasts are celebrated here, in particular the feasts of Senhora de Fátima do Rossão on the Sunday closest to 15 August, of São Domingos and Santa Bárbara, on the third Sunday in July, and São Pedro in Gosende, on 29 June. After a long walk and with a ravenous appetite stimulated by the healthy mountain air, try the local cuisine which offers delicacies such as cornbread, regional sausages, roast lamb with rice and cured ham. The characteristics of the village provide the ingredients for the local handicrafts: linen and burel work, embroidery and wickerwork are the more typical products that you can buy at the Capuchinhas House studio and shop.
