Boticas, to the rhythm of nature ... it is a challenge for you and your family to get out of the usual tourist itineraries and discover the ways of the local people, with their way of living the land.

 

An experience where children will be delighted by the presence of the shepherd who accompanies his flock of sheep, listen to his story, see the lambs just born, feel the hospitality and the traditions of the barrosan gastronomy, always  connected to the country life.

 

Follow the shepherd and his flock, from the exit of the "court" to the rails and paths traced by the animals, in a journey where the traditional songs and legends are shared, and unveiled the secrets of the mountain slopes, where the superb landscape offers extraordinary views of the surrounding hills and where the herd extends.

 

The beauty and authenticity of creative tourism.
