Covilhã, breathe the peace in Serra da Estrela
If you want to escape from stress and the big cities noises, this is your place. Dive into the mountains of Covilhã or dare to know the famous Serra da Estrela, Portugal’s highest point. If you prefer to practice ski, come visit us in winter since the Santa Eufémia Hotel is only 20 km away from the ski resort.
This spot is perfect for the ones that want to forget worries or practice hiking or ski, in winter time. We recommend you to visit beautiful places such as the Val do Rossim, the Comprida and the Redonda Lagoons. Besides, in Serra da Estrela we have a great Natural Park, one of the biggest protected areas in the country.
Do not leave Covilhã without tasting one of its specialties: the Serra da Estrela cheese, a type of semi-soft mature cheese, produced from a local type of sheep. Try some of the typical dishes of the local and national cuisine, such as the Borrego de Serra da Estrela or the Cabrito da Beira.
