Talasnal (Lousã)

Talasnal has long been the Serra da Lousã Schist Village that has given more visibility and charisma to the whole. For its size and layout, but also for the many details of the recoveries of their homes. And also by the way the village of Talasnal seduces us by mouth.

The fountain and the tank play the melody that accompanies our visit. The houses adorn with the branches of the vines. The main alley of the Talasnal follows the slope of the slope on a steep path. From it derive alley and alleyways, which create an environment of discovery that everyone likes to explore waiting for the surprise of a new nook.

Discovering this village is to immerse yourself in the magical world of Serra da Lousã and immerse yourself in lush vegetation where deer, roe deer, wild boar and many other species lurk.

In Talasnal reigns the sensitive nature, which asks for respect. But it allows countless possibilities for leisure and active sports. In the Talasnal one feels the pulse of the earth and its communion with men when one sees the villages in the distance. They seem to have been born from schist soil, naturally, like trees.

Another reason why it is one of the most sought after is due to its location. Talasnal has a great view of Lousã castle. On the other hand, it is understood its location on these steep slopes for defensive reasons. You can see what's going on without being seen.

Despite its beauty and dynamics, the village has no permanent residents. The houses are for second home, accommodation and services. It is yet another example of a village that had over a hundred inhabitants and began to be desertified almost a century ago.

The beginning of the exodus was with the imposition of the pine culture that ended pastoralism. The final ax was in 1975 when they closed the primary school that had been built with money from locals and emigrants.

Although it has no permanent residents, the village is well maintained. We soon realized this when we arrived and were greeted on the threshing floor by a fountain and a tank that played therapeutic music.

It has a network of walking routes connecting other villages. Great conditions for mountain biking and trail running. It is 2km from the pedestrian trail of Senhora da Piedade.
