Tour Details

Start your tour from Lisbon early in the morning. The first stop will be in Covilhã, the birthplace of the wool industry and the hometown of several Portuguese explorers, such as Diogo Alves da Cunha and Pêro de Covilhã. Visit the historic city center, which currently houses one of the most important universities in the country.

Then, climb to the top of the Tower, located at the highest point of the mainland of Portugal, at an incredible height of 1,993 meters. Serra da Estrela is one of the few regions in the country blessed with snow, being covered by a thick layer of snow in the dead of winter. There is also the only ski resort in the country. Admire fantastic views of winter landscapes from this privileged location. According to history, this parish emerged from a cluster of shepherd’s huts that used pastures for their sheep and goats. At the end of the 19th century, the settlement gained strength with the organization of scientific tours to Serra da Estrela.

Sabugueiro became a mandatory station or point of support and passage for explorers, and the unknown village became world famous.

Find out more about one of the products that made Portugal famous around the world. Yes, you got it right, we’re talking about Portuguese bread. The Bread Museum, located in the municipality of Seia, is a private museum that aims to gather, preserve and display artifacts related to Portuguese bread making. From 1996 to its opening to the public, in September 2002, the collection was developed through purchases in antiques stores, bookstores, auctions and donations.

When visiting a region such as Serra da Estrela, it is almost impossible to miss out on its typical cuisine. Breads, cold cuts and cheeses from the mountains are the main typical products of this region. 

Return to Lisbon with the certainty of a well spent day.
