  • The beautiful valley of Loriga originated as the glacier of the Zêzere Valley, this situated on the opposite side of the Serra da Estrela. The same glacier, which stood at the top of the mountain plateau, divided and tore these two valleys, and other smaller and less imposing valleys. However, the two most imposing glacier valleys of Serra da Estrela are different because the geological conditions were a little different. On the side of Loriga, granite was more compact and solid, and the erosive effects of the glacier were different and hampered the erosion on the glacier of Loriga. Thus, while the side of butter the glacier opened the characteristic U-shaped Valley open, ripped a Valley ice Loriga narrower, leaving high cliffs and steep slopes, a scenario no less spectacular.
