Sernancelhe

Located in the interior North of Portugal, Sernancelhe inserts in a mountainous area between the plateau of the Nave, the West, and the serra de São Gens, the East. The entire County, from North to South, is crossed by the river Távora, being bordered to the North by the municipalities of São João da Pesqueira and Tabuaço, on the East by Penedono and Trancoso, South by Aguiar da Beira, the Southwest by Sátão and the Northwest by Moimenta da Beira. One of the illustrious municipality is natural Aquilino Ribeiro, considered one of the greatest Portuguese writers of the 20th century. In his vast oeuvre, moreover, found several references to the region, mirrored from the constraints of geography at characters typically Portuguese countryside. The human presence in this territory is remote, there are traces on Monte Castelo, situated overlooking the river Medreiro, which prove the presence of the Castro people. The Romans also left their mark here: from bridges and roads to milestones and ceramic pieces. Known for producing chestnuts and, to a lesser extent, of wine and olive oil, the gastronomy of the municipality is marked by these products. Be sure to try the lamb and game dishes, sausages, ham, Meatball, roasted chestnuts or cooked and roasted potatoes baked in wood-burning oven. For dessert, we recommend sweet soups, donut, cavacas and rice pudding.
