Serra da Lousã

Interesting
Crests and wooded hillocks where the bare rock has a violet hue, form the landscape on this mountain whose highest point is 1,202m.In the low schist houses, the inhabitants lived on poor terraced crops (rye and maize) and sheep and goat farms. The systematic reforestation of the slopes in maritime pines sustains the fight against erosion.
