Rio Maior

Full description

Spend two different days in full contact with nature in the Natural Park of Serras d'Aire e Candeeiros, in the village of Chãos, a mountain village, near Rio Maior, a few km from Lisbon. Day 1 Explore the paths of Candeeiros mountain range on the back of a friendly donkey. After a delicious lunch at the restaurant "Terra Chã", there will be a workshop that will be previously chosen by you. You can spend an afternoon learning how to make bread, cheese, or the art of weaving. Bread workshop - We invite you to knead your bread and to know old superstitions. Let it rise, extend and then bake. Prove it.... Cheese workshop - Dare to milk a goat from our herd and make cheese for your snack. Weaving Workshop - Make your own piece experiencing the whole process, from warp to weaving. The rest of the afternoon will be to rest and contemplate the landscape, or to discover the trails and the smells of the flora of the Candeeiros mountain range, or simply stroll through the village of Chãos. And the day doesn't end here. After dinner there's time for an night walk full of surprises and good vibe. Day 2 After a good night rest, the day starts early and brings a unique experience. We invite you to be a salt man for a day, and experience the salt work in the natural salt pans of Rio Maior, using traditional tools and taking "your" salt back home. This activity takes place in the Salinas of Rio Maior. The animators ensure the historical setting, the traditional work of the salt flats, their formation and importance. Then pick up the tools and live the tasks inherent of a sat man, "working" in the butchers and splashing in the salt water.
