Rural Village of Giesteira

Rural Villages

Come to Giesteira, a typical village from the Minho inlands, in the parish of Vascões. Wandering through its picturesque alleys, you’ll pass by some stone houses with their typical porches, by the Capela de Nossa Senhora da Conceição and by the characteristic raccards still used by the locals to dry their cereals… An interesting journey through time that shrouds us in a warm rurality, a return to the most humble roots of our ancestors… Relax, breathe the pristine air and refresh yourself in the stone fountain… If possible, try to learn a little more about the village's most interesting legend, the one about the Priest of Giesteira. This priest lived in this village in the 17th century and became known as “the wise of Giesteira" due to his intelligence, speech skills and even to his ability to foresee future events! We won’t tell you more about this as it is much more rewarding to hear this stories told by the locals...
