Charming villages

These charming villages are called 'slate villages’ for a fairly obvious reason, because they are made of slate. This rock type has different shades that blend into the surroundings. That’s why you sometimes have to search in the mountains of Serra da Lousã, Serra do Açor and close to the Serra da Estrela. The last mountain, the "star mountain", is the highest mountain range in mainland Portugal. Glacial lakes, rugged cliffs, waterfalls and valleys form the backdrop of this nature. Ideal for those who like to walk in their  holidays!

Coimbra is a real student city, containing the oldest university in Portugal and also one of the oldest in Europe! Climb the bell tower, where you’ll be rewarded with the best views over the city.
