Tips and hintsThe Schist Walking Trail of Aldeia das Dez - Nos Passos do Ermitão [In the Hermit’s Footsteps] passes through Aldeia das Dez, São Sebastião da Feira and Santa Ovaia, three civil parishes in the municipality of Oliveira do Hospital. The landscapes that open up from Aldeia das Dez earned it the moniker of the “viewpoint village”. Built predominantly in granite, this Aldeia do Xisto has an impressive built heritage, the main church in particular, where the gilded woodcuts tell us about the many carvers and gilders who lived in this village. São Sebastião da Feira is situated on the riverbank of Alva river, which within its limits features a whimsical inverted "S" shape, known locally as the Castle Bow, which is indeed one of the most beautiful places in the region. The Mount Colcurinho is located in Açor mountain range at 1242 meters and is part of the Parish of Aldeia das Dez. Its name dates back, depending on the version, to the presence of the Romans and “Lusitanos”. This hill was formed approximately 600 million years ago together with the Estrela mountain range. Geologically it is essentially formed by schist. It is a place of rare beauty that comes from the vast horizon that extends to from Estrela to Caramulo and from Montemuro and Açor mountains range. It's probably one of the best places to watch the sun rise and the sun set. At the top of the hill is the chapel of Nª Sr.ª das Necessidades, which is part of the sanctuary of Nª Sr.ª das Preces.
