Several hands, one story, one unique flavour

Serra da Estrela PDO Region

On this journey, we listen attentively. We meet the various protagonists, each one delivering a piece of a story told by several hands, lived and felt by many people, many generations. They are the guardians of memories. They keep secrets, they keep ways of life. We continue and we are also part of that same story, we venture, we live, we share the same emotion as those who know how to have a precious legacy in their hands.

In this story, we still have room to visit museums and factories still in operation. Let's find out what was, what is and what will be. Let's see tradition and knowledge in its essence. In Serra da Estrela, we take a deep breath and find time to reencounter ourselves. We find idyllic spaces, small paradises that lull us and lull us into a story that will also become ours, forever ours.

Live in the unique landscapes where Serra da Estrela PDO cheese is born. In this programme, follow the entire process of obtaining the cheese, from milking to the cheese factory. Always in privileged contact with stunning natural landscapes, immerse yourself in the history and culture of a unique and highly distinctive product in the country's gastronomy, on a journey that follows from tradition to innovation. On this route of flavours, there are several tasting moments on offer. In different dishes and concepts, you can taste a unique and unforgettable flavour: the Serra da Estrela PDO cheese.
