SERRA DA ESTRELA
The well-known Serra da Estrela, not only a mountain, but also the region itself.
We can explore more than 300 km of fantastic trails and springs of the largest Portuguese rivers.
Lagoons and natural pools, discover the glacial valleys shaped 20,000 years ago by ice, and even the most fascinating species of birds that inhabit here.
From January to March it snows more frequently and intensely, which is great for those who like to practice snow sports.
From May to September, the temperatures are milder, which makes it excellent for outdoor walks or even a visit to river beaches.

The secret of gastronomy lies in the excellence of mountain products, the famous Queijo da Serra, wines, olive oils, fruits, sausages and breads enrich the tables of this region.
Nothing like going to the therapeutic lagoons that exist here, such as Lapa dos Dinheiros, to see the transparent and crystalline waters
reflect the green tone of the surrounding landscape.
Here we find several waterfalls of all sizes. One of the best known is the Poço do Inferno, where the sound of the water falls more than 10 meters.
The largest mountain range in mainland Portugal makes us feel tiny before the immensity of its imposing valleys.
