Messe Messe Walk

Departing and arriving at Portela de Leonte and following ancient grazing trails, we will visit several corrals (Vidoal, Junco, Conho and Messe), with a climb to Borrageiro and sighting of various points of interest.
On this visit, it will be better understood why Tude Sousa described the oven, or hut, that shepherds still use to gather and shelter – “they are rough, light constructions, of dry stones, generally poorly arranged, some coated and others not of clods, covering the gaps. Some covered with Portuguese-style round tiles; other covered with clod, garnishing wide and slender stones. Its dimensions and capacity are not large: 2 to 2,50 meters in height, 2,50 and 3 meters in length, with low doors, where the man can pass bent over and the cattle do not enter them. Three to six, or eight people, is the most they will fit.”
