PICK UP CHERRIES, TASTE REGIONAL PRODUCTS AND ENJOY THE CITY TOUR TO APPRECIATE THE ART AND HISTORY OF COVILHÃ.
The cherry is one of the most refined and modern local gastronomic products. Today it’s a symbol of the region of Cova da Beira, which knew how to take advantage of the quality of its lands and its characteristic climate. The mastery of its people has led to a gastronomic product of reference, which today is another tourist landmark of the region and begins to be a product that identifies culturally and socially this region. Known as the “gold” of Cova da Beira, embedded between Estrela and Gardunha, this is a unique opportunity to get to know the cherry “in situ”, to know a little more about it, to taste it and to understand its importance in the local context. Everything in Covilhã points to a past related to wool and its manufacture. In each “covilhanense”, we see the images and words of the factory spirit that once existed in this city. Far from these golden times, we have today, more and more works of recognition by the ancestors, who have built and perfected the bases of all the technique of working the wool. From the hard work of anciently, today we have the wool configured for a more sophisticated present and future, with new knowledge, new techniques, and new players. “Covilhã’s past is closely linked to wool and the wool industry.” This phrase taken from www.woolfest.org shows the roots of Covilhã. With this festival, several works were created in the historic center of the city where, through urban art or more alternative, an emphasis was placed on wool and the entire industry of its transformation.
