In the late '40s, the place of Small Font was renovated, the river banks were fortified and raised a picnic area with benches and tables of stone in the shade of poplar beech.
As the village straddles the Ribeira de Alte, the Source Little is one of the most pleasant and refreshing next to the stream, space advantage to honor the poet Cândido Guerreiro, where you can read some of his best-known sonnets.
The natural beauty of the Source and all its surroundings is a nice invitation to all those who love contact with nature and seek to escape the stress and the movement of large cities.
