At the top of Portugal (three days on Serra da Estrela)
This 3-day tour across the Serra da Estrela mountain range starts at Seia with a morning devoted to children.
First, an educational, fun visit to the Toy Museum to see toys from all eras, and in all shapes and sizes. Then, at the Bread Museum, the little ones will enjoy learning how to knead bread dough and make biscuits which they can take home with them. And, if it is time for lunch, this is the right place for a family meal to appreciate the flavours of the regional cuisine. Before leaving Seia, you must stop at the Information Centre to learn about trails and activities in the Natural Park.
To reach Torre, mainland Portugal’s highest point, you can choose a more mountainous road running through Sabugueiro and Lagoa Comprida, or an alternative one that leads you through a number of mountain villages such as Lapa dos Dinheiros, Sazes da Beira and Valezim.
