Portugal's Mountains, Serra da Estrela hotels

The highest point of continental Portugal, the mountain range known as Serra da Estrela is an important and fascinating part of the history, culture and geography of this rich country. Although now easily reachable by modern highways, it is a timeless place, where the majesty of nature and ancient castles, settlements and ways of life still predominate.

Villages seemingly unchanged since medieval time offer rich and robust mountain food. Kid goat, river fish, game; roasted over coals or in a hearty stew, with mountain herbs and accompanied by the regional wine, are a perfect complement to the landscape.

Each village is special, but Belmonte’s history is enthralling. Here the Jewish community, already thriving in the 13th century, were forced by persecution to practise their religion and culture in secret for centuries, only “discovered” a few decades ago.

But it is especially nature that draws visitors. In warmer seasons hikes take one past pastoral scenes, glacial valleys, beautiful and rare fauna and flora and stunning viewpoints. In winter, snow just adds to the majesty and offers the possibility of excellent winter sports opportunities.

Whatever the season, this unique destination has something special to offer.
