THE REGION


There are plenty of beautiful places to visit, but we strongly suggest the Glacier Valley of Zêzere, the Poço do Inferno Waterfall, which is in the streambed of the Leandres rivulet, a rivulet whose bed separates the granite from the schist. We also recommend the Caldas de Manteigas that is admired by its thermal waters and, at last, the majesty and splendour of the Mountain’s wild landscape, where you can find unusual crags that look like people and animals because of their anthropomorphic characteristics.
The fresh air that you can breathe here, the crystalline waters and the green environment invite you to a pleasant walk that will allow you to find out in every step plenty of interesting spots in the landscape.

 

THE VILLAGE - MANTEIGAS


At an altitude of 700 metres, the village of Manteigas provides an overall picture with its houses, where the granite and the red tiles melt into perfect harmony built throughout the years. It is the refuge for the people who have lived here for more than two thousand years and who have benefited from the comfort and quality of life in contrast to the hard and wild beauty of the mountain. When the sun sets, you can watch the mountain lightened by the stars which gave it the name and everything seems peaceful and in complete harmony.
