Avô – Small and charming
The rural area east of Coimbra is very attractive.
Small villages, sliding down the hills, old traditional houses, and, everywhere, a deep respect for nature.
The most famous of this villages is Piódão, but this one, more accessible, doesn’t stay much behind. The bridge over the Alva River is a landmark of the village and offers great views of the surrounding landscape.
In the center of the village, the Church of Saint John the Baptist comes from the 18th-century.
There is a viewpoint with great views, and, on a hot day, the river beach is a refreshing stop.
