10 km from Portugal's Geodetic Center, Água Formosa is hidden between Ribeira da Corga and Ribeira da Galega, on a sunny slope. 
10 km from the Geodesic Centre of Portugal, the village of Água Formosa hides away on a sunny slope between the Ribeira da Corga and the Ribeira da Galega. Upon arrival, you are greeted with peace, interspersed with the trickling of water between the rocks in the riverbed.

You can still find evidence of ancient traditions here, such as a number of wood-burning ovens scattered around the village and also of traditions calling on the power of the water. At the Aldeias do Xisto Shop you will find a selection of the best products in the region.

The Casas de Água Formosa are here to welcome you, an accommodation composed of five units and integrated in the Bikotel network. Casa da Ribeira is next to a small stream that flows into Ribeira da Galega. It crosses the village of Água Formosa. The outside retains its original design. Inside, the decor is contemporary and very comfortable. In addition to the huge clay and schist walls, the house has doors and windows with great thermal and acoustic insulation.
