Welcome to Piódão

Until the 1970s the only way to reach Piódão was on horseback or by foot. Nowadays, visitors drive in and the village has become something of a tourist attraction. It remains a wonderfully atmospheric spot, though. As you wander its tiny lanes note the many doorways with crosses over them – these were said to offer protection against curses and thunderstorms.
