Talasnal, where Nature reigns

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Talasnal is one of several Serra da Lousã Schist Villages, and I have heard for years in this place not only for its beauty but also because of the numerous hiking trails around it.

I visited Talasnal in September 2018, as well as Casal Novo Village, Chiqueiro Village, Candal Village, and Gondramaz Village, the latter already belonging to the Miranda do Corvo municipality, but that’s where I stayed overnight.

The municipality of Lousã includes the first 4 statements and the Cerdeira Village. The latter unfortunately did not have time to visit it.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6908″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6909″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The approach to the village, by a descent where barely two cars fit, is made up to a square with several small buildings that welcome us to the past. On the right side is Casa da Eira, the reception area, and on the left side a small time-traveling tavern that contrasts with the plastic chairs and tables on the terrace.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6921″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6910″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The Talasnal Village is part of the Schist Villages Network and is listed on the Serra da Lousã Community Importance Site – Natura 2000 Network.

Although there are no records of the settlement of the village, it is thought that the foundation should have taken place in the 2nd half of the 17th century, or in the early 18th century since in the Kingdom Population Register in 1527 there is no mention of these villages. .


The first reference to the Talasnal comes only when a fine was imposed by the Câmara da Lousã in 1679.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6911″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]As stated at the beginning, in Serra da Lousã there are numerous trails to plunge, not literally, into the lush vegetation where deer, roe deer, wild boar and many other species of animal life still lurk.

This did not seem to me to be the largest shale village in Lousã, but no doubt that as we walk through its narrow streets it seems that we are in a movie of the past.

There are several houses under reconstruction, and one or another abandoned, which loses some of this magic, but once the staircases and stone buckets are removed, the view will be even better.

But undoubtedly the Talasnal has contributed with a lot of visibility and charisma to all these Schist Villages, probably by the layout in the Serra da Lousã, but also by the details.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6912″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6913″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Discovering the village through the steep narrow streets of the hillside is timeless. There are alleys to discover, stairs to climb or descend and balconies to admire. Here nature and the human hand are united.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6914″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]I started the route on the left, passing several local accommodation houses such as Casa Princesa Peralta, Casa Lausus, Pedra Zen Accommodation and a restaurant, Ti Lena’s.

Along the way, you can not miss the olive oil mills, and should not miss a visit to Ti Filipa Handicraft Shop. On the return offshore, if you have not realized, you can contemplate the Fountain and Village Tank.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6915″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6916″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6917″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6918″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6919″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6920″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”6922″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Just outside Talasnal Village, on the road that leads to Lousã, you will find a beautiful belvedere with the same name that the village adopted, the Talasnal Mountains of Love Viewpoint.

From here the view of the village is excellent, especially on sunny days, for the blue of the sky to contrast with the green of the mountains and the color of the houses that seem to camouflage among cork oaks, oaks, pines and chestnut trees, but to no avail.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6923″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_facebook][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
