Serra da Estrela


Start your journey with the main attraction near Pouzada, the Serra da Estrela Natural Park. Climb to the top of the mountain, admire the views of the mountain range. You can also try and buy the region's traditional appetizers: special cheeses and hams.

Salto do Lobo


On the way back, before dinner, take a look at this house museum, where the good hosts will meet you, treat you to tasty snacks and drinks and tell you interesting stories.

Restaurante Montes Hermínios

Portuguese Restaurants

Montes Herminios has a varied menu, and the main thing is traditional dishes and a pleasant attitude to the guests. There aren't many catering establishments in the area of the natural park, so it's a good luck that not only is there a good restaurant near Pouzada, but also a place where you can eat or taste the best dishes of this region of Portugal from 8.00 to 23.00 every day.
