Torre : Michelin's recommendations
At 1 993m, Torre is the highest point in Portugal, and stands in a barren landscape 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 by 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 Lake Comprida, the largest in the Serra. Descending into the valley of Mondego, the views are splendid.
