Serra da Estrela Things to Do: 32 reviews and 48 photos


This belvedere is near Covilhã, just a few km away. The view is fabulous, and if weather allows you will see the surroundings for km. We were quite lucky as the sky was blue and the sun shining so we managed to enjoy ourselves for a while admiring the surroundings - both gorgeous mountainous landscapes and tiny villages spreading on the slopes of the mountain. Behind you and to the left is the mountain and it will provide you with a first impression of what you are about to find. To the right and down is the bottom of the mountain and you will have a view over Covilhã as well as other villages that from this distance look like white dots.
