"Nave de Santo António" Top 5 Page for this destination Serra da Estrela Things to Do Tip by micas_pt

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


Nave de Santo António is often compared to a lunar landscape since it is arid with sand, little rocks and some holes (craters). The vegetation is very very sparse and limited to a few bushes spread around this 1550m high place. Driving from Covilha to Torre you will sure notice it by any viewpoint on the road. While we stopped here to enjoy the view, we were also able to notice some ponds and lagoons nearby.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
