Your first stop is the Celorico da Beira, a small village located near the Serra da Estrela and the Mondego river. This is the Portuguese capital of the Serra da Estrela cheese.

Your guide will tell you historical facts of this rural village as you walk around its lovely features until you Santa Maria Church, the Mother church of Celorico. With Baroque architectonic influences, this Church is considered a Public Interest Asset, since 1960.
