Tips and hints
In Cambas, the Zêzere lends a bit of her beauty to the river beach, situated on the right bank of the river and protected by pine-covered mountains. Another of the attractions of the river beach is the weir, with a waterfall that transmits all the freshness of the river. The Cambas Bridge, upstream, is another emblematic point that indelibly marks the surrounding landscape. Pay a visit to the old parish church, dedicated to this patron saint. Of note here are the carved altars, eight Mozarab tile panels, said to date from the 16th century and some emblematic images and figures, such as the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the “frown of the pulpit".
Abitureira is a land that is very typical, recognised for its know-how, which translates into quality products. The goat cheese produced here or the stoned kid, prime examples of the cuisine of Oleiros Municipality, are perfect ambassadors of a land with ancient knowledge passed down from generation to generation. In terms of fauna, there is the wild boar and, in the ornithological field, the raven.
