    Excellent place for some r&r in the middle of nature, with lots of green, peace and quiet. Best to come here in “wetter” seasons rather than summer time when the water flows have dried, but it’s still worth the visit, especially if you’re going upwards to the top of the mountain.

    Beautiful and calm park, with a lot of trees to shelter you. There's amazing views of the mountains, and you'll find there's restrooms, a small shop to buy drinks/snacks and barbecue areas. It's the perfect place to stop and relax while visiting Serra de Estrela.

    A small but nice green area with a river. People can use the public barbecue places

    Do the walk towards the three cantaros, you will not be disappointed. It is beautiful here, fun to climb and scramble on the boulders too. Amazing views and looks like a brilliant place to stay for the day. We came for sunset which was lush

    Very beautiful. It has places for a barbecue.

    There is parking in front of the park. It's very nice for walking and to bring the pets for a little exercise. Due to a few tourists that don't clean after using it, it's a bit untidy in a few parts.

    Great place for a picnic with amazing views, in winter you can find snowy paths.

  • 5/5 Guilherme C. 1 year ago on Google
    One of the best places to relax and have a picnic. Dog friendly, family friendly and has the infrastructures to barbeque and eat.

  • 5/5 André M. 1 year ago on Google
    Surprisingly enchanting place. The road to get there is breathtaking. This gorgeous place sits right at the base of a mountain. Walk all the way to the end to contemplate it and take the best pictures. Great for a family picnic.

    I really like this stop in Serra da Estrela. This park is beautiful and has barbecue in the garden. We went in the winter and there were snow but I think during spring and summer it is a very good place to spent a day relaxing

  • 5/5 Luis Almeida F. 1 year ago on Google
    What a beautiful stop! The start of the Zêzere river is right there, in a lovely park with picnic tables and a mini-hike. We stayed for an hour playing on the grass, but I can imagine a long afternoon with lunch and some frisbee or soccer.

  • 5/5 Mylène 1 year ago on Google
    Breathtaking natural place. My favourite part of the Serra da Estrela! There’s plenty of space, tables for piqueniques, public grills, public toilets with paper but no sinks, a little bar even. Great to spend time with kids and pets. You don’t want to miss this!

    Quiet place, great for family day out

  • 5/5 Eduardo V. 1 year ago on Google
    It’s like being in Eden, a piece of heaven in earth.

  • 3/5 ivan f. 4 years ago on Google
    Middle way between Manteigas and the highest point of Portugal, there is an idilic place where people can have a picnic, right next to Zêzere river and the largest glaciar valley of Europe. It could be a little bit more preserved though.

  • 5/5 Janis D. 2 years ago on Google
    Perfect place to have some snack, drink pure spring water and do not be lazy to walk a bit to see incredible rocks at the end of the park.

  • 5/5 Ger M. 2 years ago on Google
    Beautiful serene place with tranquil water features surrounded in three sides by high rocky ridges and crags.

  • 5/5 Ygor D. 2 years ago on Google
    Amazing place, surrounded by the mountains and really close to the Tower. It’s windy in the Autumn, but it’s worth the visit for a walk and a picnic. You can park in the road outside beside the entrance.

😐 Don't get me wrong, the place is beautiful. But we went to see the waterfall and there was none. Somehow travel guides forgot to mention that you can see it only during some months. So for sure no waterfall in September and October.

Drinking water fountain
👍👍 What a view and fresh water that you can actually drink. And I mean very fresh water, even during summer. A mandatory quick stop if you come this way.

Scenic spot
👍👍 Local de acesso relativamente fácil (cerca de 500m da estrada principal) e com uma vista fantástica sobre Manteigas. Quando visitámos vimos diversos corvos, depreendendo daí a origem do nome. (Fragão do corvo).

👍👍 A Serra em todo o seu esplendor, e ao fundo o Vale Glaciar de Manteigas provavelmente o maior da Europa com 13 KLM de extensão. Uma delícia para os amantes da natureza montanha e escalada, no entanto CUIDADO, não é visto com bons olhos escalar na Serra, supostamente é proibido, informe-se bem.

👍👍 In the middle of nowhere you'll find these huts carved into blank rock with somewhat of a garden right in front - well worth the hike
