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.
