In harmony with nature and family roots, Janeiro de Cima welcomes large numbers of people on weekends and high season. In the Summer, one can do pick-nicks in the woods or take a bath in the river beach. Here traditions are revived through knowledge and art is redefined through the hands of present practice.

By the river bank you could scream "boatman!" to cross the river. This was the way people and trade from both sides united, and you can still go on a boat trip up the river. In the Casa das Tecedeiras (weaver's house) one can listen to the orchestra of looms at work, weaving a symphony of colour. In the walls, among the orange schist stone, round stones stand out, a unique feature of this village. In the late afternoon sunlight, this singular architecture made of river stones gives a red hue to the houses.
Nearby is Barragem de Santa Luzia (an artificial lake), Serra da Lousã, Serra da Estrela, Minas da Panasqueira (volframium mining) and other schist villages.
