Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela

The first word that springs to mind when one wants to describe the Natural Park of the Estrela Mountain is "diversity". This central massif that comprises the municipalities of Celorico da Beira, Covilhã, Gouveia, Guarda, Manteigas and Seia, is quite diverse in landscape terms. The central high plain, dominated by the Torre (Tower, the highest pont in mainland Portugal, at an altitude of 1991 metres) and the Zêzere glacier are completely different from other parts of the mountain.
