If I understood correctly Torre is the highest mountain in Portugal. 7 meters off 2000. It is an awesome road getting up there, winding with beautiful vistas. When we were up there we were above the clouds stretching out like a soft white wollen blanket....More

We visited the Torre twice today. The first time it was very foggy but clearer the second time. It is special because you can see for miles. However I enjoyed it when it was foggy just as much.

It was very nice to go and check all over and almost no snow, even its around 6500ft. In winter is most closed due to the roads closed. Wkends are worst with all tour coming and go, so not much quieter place.

Serra da Estrela must be in your bucket list of places to visit in Portugal, so different from the snow resorts from the rest of Europe or our well know sunny beaches. It’s amazing for its raw beauty. One should consider the weather forecast before...More
