Serra da Estrela
Type de cuisine : Traditional
Torre : Michelin's recommendations
Torre, the highest point in Portugal, at almost 2,000m, stands in bare countryside with little grass. There is a vast panoramic view over the crop of reliefs of the Serras da Estrela and da Lousa from the centre marked with a plinth bearing a cross. The road then winds over the crest amongst the rocks, the mosses and the lakes including the deep blue waters of the Lagoa Comprida, which is the largest in the Serra. Descending into the valley of Mondego, the views are splendid.
