Helana is a restaurant located in the Naturtejo UNESCO Global Geopark, in the historical centre of Idanha-a-Nova. It is a family project focused on local ingredients and well-kept recipes, that have been part of the local food since ever and that bring us through the landscapes, geomonuments and traditions of the Geopark, in a sensorial experience.

The restaurant has a cosy space, where regional cuisine is mixed together with delicious modern flavours. Based in a soft drink old factory, the space was inaugurated in 2000 and since then it has received several distinctions and awards. Deeply committed with global policies and strategies, Helana has adopted a Strategy for Sustainability, already distinguished by the Green Key award. Helana’s GEOfood Menu brings to the table cheeses, olive oil and sausages, the main gastronomic ambassadors of Portugal and of this particular region.
