A tangle of narrow streets flanked by traditional schist houses leads to the community oven where bread is backed. The older generations used to meet in this place, as well as in the fountain where everyone collected their water. Nowadays, Figueira is still ruled by the rhythm of rural life. The windmill and the threshing floor, the cattle slowly passing by, the orchards and the hay transport in carriages make the village a timeless place where people relate to each other as if they were all a small family. In the exit there is a path which leads to a Philippine bridge and an olive oil press. Close-by and contrasting with this rurality, you will find Fróia river beach and the Moitas Parachuting Centre, two places equally capable of providing well-spent days.
