With or without snow, a trip to Serra da Estrela is always a great idea.
Visit the towns of Seia and Covilhã, explore the village of Manteigas, enjoy the magnificent landscape of the village of Sabugueiro, immerse yourself in the beauty of Lagoa Comprida, visit Penhas da Saúde and drive all the way up to the Tower for some fun in the snow.
To regain your strength, you can't go wrong: try the Serra da Estrela cheese, the most famous product of the region. With its buttery texture, it goes ideally with traditional bread. It can be tasted all over the region, but in the Solar do Queijo (Cheese Manor House), in Celorico da Beira, the tasting will be accompanied by an explanation about the manufacturing process.
