Casal do Rei

Casal do Rei, a village of 150 inhabitants, mostly farmers and resin extractors, is located at 6 km away from Vide. Its architectural heritage includes the chapel that evokes Saint Joseph. The legend says that Domingos de Fugueiredo, a friar that escaped his convent, found refuge in this village and oredered the building of the chapel.

Nearby, there is a wood with vestiges of primitive vegetation.
