National Park Serra da Estrella

1

The National Park Serra da Estrella is the highest mountain chain in Portugal. Most of the Portuguese just call it Serra. The highest Mountain is the so called Torre, which is almost 2000 meters high. On the way up and down I had to stop for several times just to take some pictures of this really natural beauty.

On its top you’ll have a wonderful view, in summer you can just sit there, buy some special, regional cheese, which is called Queijo da Serra, or watch the wild dogs having a fight. Making pictures in front of a little tower which is on top of the mountain is in summer the most popular thing to do. It’s the only part in Portugal were you can go for skiing in winter and every Portuguese child has to be there once in his lifetime for grabbing some snow. But be careful, don’t eat yellow snow!
