Estrela Geopark

In the context of the Central Continental Portugal Region, Estrela Geopark includes part or all of the nine municipalities that are structured around Serra da Estrela –  a factor that gives them identity and territorial cohesion.

The territory of this Geopark reflects a diverse landscape, the result of multiple geological transformations, climatic contrasts recorded, as well as the ancient human occupation, whose first records date back to the beginning of the 4th millennium a. C. Like the Portuguese writer of the 20th century, Miguel Torga, says “Estrela is tall, immense, enigmatic and her physical presence is immediately an obsession, adding to the disturbing reality an even more vivid certainty: that of all local truths emanate from it ”(Miguel Torga, 1967).
