Day 1

Arrival to Castelo Branco (Meeting with the representative of Try Portugal)

We leave for a visit to the walls of Castelo Branco, which refer to the Templar presence in the region, where you can enjoy a magnificent view over the area.

Visit the Embroidery Interpretation Center, where you can observe the meeting of artifacts with current digital supports. From the seeding to the weaving, an emersion of sensations and of incalculable value.

Departure to Alcaide to enjoy the “Míscaros” Fair (a fair about one type of mushroom).

After a visit to the “Míscaros” Fair, we went to a beautiful meal in a typical restaurant of the region for a meal with the same products of the fair.

After a short pause, we continue to the stunning Serra da Gardunha for a stroll where we can enjoy the wonderful Chestnut trees that surround this beautiful landscape.

Of course to accompany a tour like this would have to enjoy a “Magusto” (is a Portuguese tradition, where people socialize while are roasting chestnuts at the campfire) and taste the chestnuts that we hear so much, of course, accompanied by a wonderful Jeropiga (a drink), a typical accompaniment of any “Magusto”.

At the end of the “Magusto”,  we bid farewell to our visitors with a pleasant memory of the region so that this experience can always be remembered.
