ALMOST REACHING THE SKY
Serra da Estrela is the highest point in mainland Portugal (1993m), where you can fully enjoy the snow. Here life is greatly influenced by the cold and snowy winters. Men learned how to survive and you can see it through the houses and the handmade warm cloaks and woolen garments.
To reach the top one crosses the mountains in defined tracks that begin in Seia and Gouveia.
Up there the bravest visitors will find themselves surrounded by nature. Nothing but nature.
In Manteigas, the last place to stop for a few minutes of rest, we can find some comfort in the amazing cheese from Serra da Estrela, in the ham and other regional products, which always taste better when accompanied by a regional wine.
