Trip to the centre of Portugal
Between the Douro and the Taje, a handful of villages were built in the Middle Ages as fortresses, on promontories, overlooking the attacker, Spain. This is the Serra da Estrelais, a region located in central Portugal; a wooded mountain range that shelters the largest Natural Park in the country. From top to bottom, from village to village, we discover a harsh universe, unexpected landscapes. A stopover in a traditional wool mill, a visit to a Baroque garden, and an evening stay in a beautiful hotel, the Casa de San Lourenço, where we take time to explore the horizon, do nothing, cultivate the art of indulgence.
