Discovering the ore’s legacy is our proposal for a new and different experience for this summer. The “minas do alemão”, today deactivated, they have always remained in the shadow of the Minas da Panasqueira. It reveals a unique landscape over Estrela sul and Serra da Gardunha, where the relationship with the river Zêzere is very close.

A visit with a very strong historical and rural component, in a unique project in the country, now converted into a tourist perspective. They were awarded to be the setting of the historical series“ The Spy”, a successful series of RTP1.
