This is a lovely village located in one of the many valleys near Estrela Mountain (that you can see in the background). This village is named "Cabeça" that in english means "Head" ;))) which is a curious name to give to a place...maybe their inhabitants are called the "lices" ;))))))

This place is in a transition region in terms of geology, from granitic rocks to shale ones...so, as you can see there are already many houses made only with shale, which gives a wonderful arquitecture to the village in my opinion.

I called it a lost village cause is located in a deep valley with bad roads to access it and as you can see looks like its a ghost place in the middle of nowhere :)
