About the neighbourhood
This part of Central is steeped in history and places to visit. You will find the weather is constant and mostly quite warm from Spring through to Autumn. Barracao where casa de Vista de Montahna sits is a small village with extremely friendly locals. Nothing seems to be any trouble for them and the are more than happy to help you. Barracao has much beauty and fantastic scenery as it sits within the mountains. Mortagua is just 10 minutes from Barracao and is also a lovely town to visit and explore.
Getting around
Although there are a couple of shops for bare essentials and some local bars and restaurants there is also a bus service that stops at the top of my road, one going to Luso and opposite side goes to Mortagua. This is of course if you do not have a car.,l
