With a distinctive personality, as if its powerful face was looking at the river with the eyes of a guard, Janarde expands a row of houses made of schist over a piece of land, towards the river. In fact, the Paiva River has the appeal of growing these little brown and grey magic labyrinths over its banks, where the small churches are always given a central place, like the whitewashed chapel of Saint Barnabas, which welcomes the ones visiting Janarde. The traditional festival of the local patron saint is still organized by the people from this village, in order to keep this tradition as one of the highlights of the community life. Janarde, as most of the traditional villages present in this side of Arouca Geopark, is no longer considered a lost village.
