Two views of the village Piodão high up in the Serra do Açor in central Portugal. Now very much a tourist destination. Th start and finish of our walk last Friday and about an hour's drive from home along very twisty roads.

Thanks to all who looked, voted and commented on my last upload

I read a tourist chat on Piodão.. Someone Craig M by name wrote:

"I’ve visited some sleepy mountain villages in Portugal but this isn’t one of them. It’s a bustling little place, that is firmly on the tourist trail. On the approach to the village, there is a one-way system to facilitate orderly parking. The village square has several stalls selling tourist trinkets as well as a couple of cafes. Below the village, there is a natural swimming area in the river. It is an attractive and enjoyable place to visit."
