Serra da Gardunha, Fundao

4.6
#2 of 9 in Outdoors in Castelo Branco District
The Gardunha mountain range, so called by the Moors, is located in central Portugal, in Centro Region, beyond the Serra da Estrela range, giving way to an extensive plain called Cova da Beira. It was covered with vineyards in the time of King Dinis, who reigned in the 13th and 14th centuries. But the sovereign decided to pull them up and replace them with chestnut trees all over the Alcambar valley. The valley became known as the King's groves. Unfortunately though, due to man's negligence, violent fires destroyed a significant number of trees, although some areas were reforested. Pirâmide, is the highest point in Gardunha mountain range.

    One of the most beautiful places in Portugal, especially in may, with all its cherry blossoms. If you climbed the top of the gardunha, it has an exceptional view of the highest mountain in the country, the serra da estrela. One of the walks do not miss in the Portugal. Can be a family with children.

    Rails for all tastes, roundtrips from one hour to full day percirsos. Always with breathtaking scenery and passing by very close to the original forest of this area.

    Has a stunning landscape with the cherry blossoms in bloom, and in the fall is matizadi of various colors that give you an incomparable beauty. Beautiful hiking routes, and mountain biking, very well-kept and placarded. Without doubt, a good experience for nature lovers
