Honey production is deeply connected to Lousã and even though the tradition is very important for locals, beekeeping here has always been a challenge. Bees go through forest fires every summer season, constant invasion of wasps and agricultural pesticides and insecticides. These problems might seem unsolvable, but luckily, beekeepers know how to deal with them.
With summer approaching and the weather getting hotter, people are looking for ways to cool down and get a break from the high temperatures, to which Lousã offers the perfect solution with its river beaches. In the municipality there are 3 river beaches, 2 of which have attained the Blue Flag certification.
