Sortelha is one of the most beautiful villages i ever seen, it is located no far from Serra da Estrela (30 minutes). It is a medieval village located at 800m of altitude, surrounded of a wall and constituted with small houses in granite all perfectely refurbished and with a beautiful castle. In this moment lives there just a small amount of people, perhaps no more than one dozen because almost of the houses belongs to people there are not from there and they spend just holidays and vacations there. It deserves a visit for sure, don?t miss it is so beautiful!
If you come from Lisbon, take the A1, THE IP6 and the IP2. If you come from Porto, the better trajectory is A1, IP5 and go out in Guarda and fallow to Sabugal.
