Although many of the Arouca’s inhabitants don't know it, the village of Cando became known for its slate quarries, maybe the oldest known in Arouca. In the left bank of the Vidoeiro stream, and as we are looking up, we can see little terraces, where the fields and houses have been arranged over time. Many people believe that there are treasures kept here since the time of the Moors, in a real «schist village» that the inhabitants have made a point of preserving.
