In Gondramaz, schist has its own unique colour, as if it wants to highlight the unique personality of its inhabitants. With its remodelled buildings, according to the Schist Villages network plan, Gondramaz is now the home for recognized international plastic artists. But the village is also a mandatory stop place for those who like sports like downhill or MTB and it is the place where the Pátio do Xisto, a tourist project in rural environment, which has been much talked about, first started. It is a pleasure to stroll through the streets where everything is made out of schist and the floor you step on is a true work of art, until you follow a pedestrian track beyond the houses which will lead you into the woods on your way to Penedo dos Corvos.
