Sometimes we need a break from cities and beaches. A walk in nature is the ideal to find peace and relax. If you can add this to visiting a unique spot like Covão dos Conchos you get an amazing trip.
Serra Da Estrela
One of the most famous mountain destinations is definitely Serra da Estrela. This peaceful place is mainly located in the district of Guarda, in the center-north of Portugal.
It is the highest mountain range in Continental Portugal and is featured by rocky spaces, woods, or artificial lakes.
It is very appreciated during the winter. Indeed, it is one of the few places in Portugal where you can see it snowing.
Covão Dos Conchos
This engineering work, which may look like a hole to another dimension, is a man-made tunnel. It was built to provide nearby communities with fresh water.
It is located between Lagoa da Serra da Estrela and Lagoa Comprida and, indeed, connects the two lakes.
