Flanked by the imposing mounds of the Panasqueira Mines, this 3.4 km route takes you towards the prehistorical rock engravings in the Aldeia do Xisto of Barroca. On leaving here in the company of the PR1 FND, the rute goes along the slopes on the left bank of the river. Usptream, there are tailings from the Panasqueira mines (Cabeço do Pião). Here, the river begins its more meandering and sinous strecht. Passing the southernmost tailings, it rapidly approaches Barroca always in conjuction with PR1 FND. 

Author’s recommendation

Tips, hints and links

O complexo do Cabeço do Pião destaca-se da paisagem envolvente pelas suas enormes escombreiras, resultado da atividade das Minas da Panasqueira.

Na Barroca continua a respirar-se um ambiente rural, pautado pelos seus ciclos agrícolas. É aqui a sede da Rede e das Lojas das Aldeias do Xisto. O casario em xisto, o rio Zêzere, o pinhal e a vista direta para as escombreiras do Cabeço do Pião dão a esta Aldeia do Xisto um charme muito próprio.
