The villages of Shale have already been dubbed "magical villages," their names sound like Romans, Arabs and even barbarians, but it is their characteristic appearance that makes them so fantastic.<br>These structures dating back to medieval times emanate an architectural beauty that is still difficult to match today, even more fascinating are the places where they find themselves by necessity of fixation for pastoral and agricultural activities.<br>During this adventure we will take you to know some of the most beautiful villages of Shale of Serra da Lousã as well as the sweeping landscapes that this unique place has to offer ...

A nice schist castle located in the Serra da Lousa and surrounded by forest. It takes a little to reach by foot from Lousa city center but the hike is worth the place and views

Last month was under renovation, so I did not see it in full bloom. Very nice views from the castle. Also, a nice area for a picnic or a swim :)

We drove in on motorcycles and stayed in this Castle! What a class treat after a long break day's ride through the forests and villages of the Serra da Estrella. Staff were extremely helpful and service was excellent. Rooms are dated but not like motel 6 but now like this place used to be a castle.

On the outskirts of Lousa, the Lousa Castle, under renovation when we were there with restricted access, still impresses from its imposing contours and its schist construction. The castle is a short walk to the picnic area, restaurant and pools down the hill. The Lousa Castle is great piece of local and architectural history; you should check it out.
