Sortelha one of the Historical Villages that may be visited while in Serra da Estrela area. This lovely village has been completely refurbished and all stone houses look wonderful with their wooden doors and windows. But too perfect, and so many of them seem to be empty, ? Going up the castle and the castle?s walls provides a fabulous view over the surrounding mountains and valleys ? just breathtaking! There are rooms to rent inside the village and a few bars.
