Shepherd for 1 day
Can you imagine being a shepherd for one day? The municipality of Castro Daire has created a unique package that includes this amazing experience, ideal for nature lovers and for travelers in search of new places and faces. And the most incredible stories.
This swing is placed in a surprising location: a deactivated quarry (“pedreira”, in Portuguese) that was converted in a whole new leisure spot, offering a view over an incredibly blue lagoon.
The EN2 (National Road 2) connects Portugal from Chaves to Faro and it is one of the longest routes in the world - 739,26 km-long, along with the iconic Route 66 in the United States of America rca and Ruta 40 in Argentina. This impressive road connects 11 districts, 35 municipalities, 11 mountains and 13 rivers!

The section of the municipality of Castro Daire is 40 kms long, starting in Cabrum river stream.
Termas do Carvalhal
