Handmade

In the Craft Potters preserves some traditional knowledge, such as banks cork (so-called "tripping"), currently produced in Gaspalha, parish Álvaro, the art of working copper in the parish of Estreito and the art of weaving linen, still preserved in the Estreito looms and Orvalho. Formerly large population grew flax and wove a ballet single wire ... this tradition was so entrenched, that defends the exclusivity of a specific technique of weaving linen and silk, the "mantejas".

Basket weaving is also an art with some expressiveness in Oleiros and, more recently, witnessing the execution of painting decorative ceramic.

These knowledges are cultural testimonies, that bring to life current customs and traditional habits of this people in all its purity.
