Vilarinho Seco

District: Vila Real | County: Boticas | Parish: Alturas do Barroso

Situated in the foothills of Alturas do Barroso Mountain, Vilarinho Seco is one of the most well-preserved Barrosa villages. This is one of the three parishes of Alturas do Barroso and is part of Boticas Municipality. It invites you on an attentive visit to its most picturesque streets! Embark on this journey through time, in a part of Trás-os-Montes that knows how to preserve its more traditional characteristics! Full of traditional granite features, the village is still dedicated to agriculture and sheep farming. There is no lack of granite granaries and some homes still have thatched roofs, typical of other times.

Stroll through the labyrinthine paths of the village and linger to enjoy a great example of what life in a small community is like: in the main village square, you can see the washing tank, the cross and the chapel. There is an arch over the main street in the village, an overpass that connects homes to the cattle sheds. In addition, the village still uses the community oven to bake bread.

The traditional mills are another landmark that must be seen. Walk along the Mill Route Trail and delight in the surrounding tranquillity. Here you can also find several activities promoted and organised by the Barroso Eco-Museum. Close by you can also visit the vast Alto Rabagão reservoir, especially tempting on hot days. After a long walk, indulge yourself with the typical flavours served in O Palheiros regional restaurant, a space which has been well restored and which uses an old threshing floor as a patio.
