O Moinho das Freiras situa-se na margem esquerda do rio Zêzere e é composto por duas zonas de lazer, uma junto ao rio e outra junto ao túnel. 
Um recanto único do vale do Zêzere, o Moinho das Freiras situa-se na margem esquerda do rio e é composto por duas zonas de lazer, uma junto ao rio e outra junto ao túnel. Supõe-se que o nome Moinho das Freiras teve origem no facto de, até à construção da barragem, terem existido nesta zona moinhos, um deles pertencente a um dos dois conventos que existiram na Aldeia do Xisto de Pedrógão Pequeno. A certeza histórica perdeu-se com o tempo, mas o nome prevalece até hoje.
