From the shop you can discover the unique religious heritage of the village.
The Aldeia do Xisto of Álvaro stretches languid and snaking along a slope overlooking the River Zêzere. It is one of the most noble and emblematic "white villages" of the Aldeias do Xisto Network.

Besides its remarkable religious heritage, it is also worth visiting it to discover the best regional products offered by the Schist Villages' shops. As emblematic products you will find brandy, liquor and medronho jam, from SILVAPA, from Oleiros. And also slums, blankets and rag dolls, of the Trapologia brand, and some works in shale. It is also from the shop that you can discover the unique religious heritage of this village by taking the Chapels Route. Talk to our shopkeeper.
