No one will be able to remain indifferent… to the “Dog Serra da Estrela”, always very playful and waiting for the usual parties and games… for the unique taste of the Cheese Serra da Estrela, with the possibility of numerous visits to places, uses and customs associated with this gastronomic gem… to the beauty and simplicity of the pieces made in burel, it is essential to know its “modus operandi”, even with the existence of many manual processes in its manufacture!
But your visit to Serra da Estrela cannot be limited to the mountain. On its edge there are cities, towns and villages that deserve special attention. The city of Covilhã stands out, for example, intrinsically linked to wool work and the industrial culture of woolen fabrics that were developed here for centuries. This city is also known today for urban art, a different way of telling the story of the “factory city”, with a visit to immense murals, where various artists expressed, through authentic works of art, their vision of history , uses and traditions of the city. This route, known as “Woolfest“, is a priority visit and must be on your agenda.
