Busteliberne

District: Braga | County: Cabeceiras de Basto | Parish: São Nicolau

In the heart of Cabreira mountain, at an altitude of 800 metres, stands the village of Busteliberne, part of the parish of Cabeceiras de Basto (São Nicolau), in Cabeceiras de Basto Municipality.
It is thought that Busteliberne has its origins in the traditional shelters for shepherds, which progressively evolved into the rural cluster that we know today. This is a typical mountain village, whose houses and mills are arranged on terraces and are sometimes mistaken for rocks.

Walking through the village is the best way of getting to know it and experiencing it. The Viega hiking route, a total of 14 kilometres, covers all the main points of interest in the village and its surroundings: the chapel, recently remodelled; archaeological finds in Lameiras, São Nicolau; the recreational airstrip in Moinhos do Rei, in Abadim; the wild deer enclosure and the Moinhos do Rei game management centre; and the Monastery of São Miguel de Refojos, in the municipal seat. Be sure to take a look at the fascinating examples of rural “engineering”, which are the cross-over path and the water channel.

The path is the boundary between the constructed and agricultural areas; the channel, starting in the Mourinho stream, was “designed” in such a way that the force of the water would feed a set of mills, as well as washing and water tanks and ultimately irrigate part of the marshes in the area to the west of the village. These structuring elements are currently one of the major attractions in Busteilberne. Honey and regional sausages are the most typical local cuisine products. Take a break from your diet and enjoy the flavours of Busteilberne!
