Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Castelo Branco District / Fundao / Miscellaneous / Serra da Gardunha
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.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Fundao holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Serra da Gardunha and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
