Penhas da Saúde
The Essential
This is a winter sports resort and a summer holiday spot. The surrounding area is irregular and, every now and again, you will find dammed or glacial lakes in the crevices. The road to Manteigas takes you through beautiful landscapes, where you will see in a shelter hollowed out of the rock, the statue of Nossa Senhora da Boa Estrela, whose Festival is celebrated every August. Not far from the summit of Torre is a belvedere with an interesting view over the dammed lake.
