"Cov„o de Ferro" 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


Covão de Ferro is a lagoon that can be seen from that same road we were following. It is situated on a high hill and if you watch the photo closely you may notice that is has a wall on the left side. This lagoon usually freezes in colder days. But in sunny days such as the one we visited it provides beautiful scenery on the rocky and somewhat arid mountains that surround it. When you reach this point of the road there is not much vegetation around, and the highest spot in mainland Portugal is near - Torre.
