Portugal Food Stories Day 9 – Serra da Estrela Sunset

Portugal Food Stories – Serra da Estrela Sunset – A World to Travel
Baby goats, nordic design, and awe-inspiring natural scenery at sunset while touring nearby Portugal’s highest spot. That was pretty much this 9th day of the Portugal Food Stories tour about.
Welcome to Serra da Estrela!
Still semi-asleep, we left Trancoso early in the morning and reached a goat farm half an hour away.
To our surprise, the kind owners didn’t make a fuss at all when we started pointing five DLSR cams to their beloved goats barely centimeters away or when we requested to hold and pet two newborns that were just way too cute to skip 🙂

J’ADORE! #portugalfoodstories Becoming friends with these two baby goats at #SerraDaEstrela They are just two days old!

After running after them in order to bring you some cool shots for a while, coffee was not needed anymore and the group was ready to pay attention and learn how the world-known Serra da Estrela cheese is produced. With a creamy consistency that makes it perfect to be spread over some toasted bread, we ate way too much before leaving the property. It was delicious!
Lunch took part at Casa das Penhas Douradas and it consisted of these stylish little portions of food in a stunning location surrounded by warm nordic architecture and furniture. Loved it.



Look at my #portugalfoodstories cottage of choice Can’t we just stay here tonight?

Covilha was the last stop of the day and the place where we all would be resting after an exciting day. Anyway, not before shooting the most amazingly smooth sunset on top of Serra da Estrela ever as well as enjoying dinner in a restaurant full of local students celebrating the beginning of their Academic Year. Songs and house wine kept coming for hours, louder and faster.

Craziness. But one I am used to and that reminds me so much of my student years. So it wasn’t a bad thing at all. On the contrary, I really enjoyed the unique atmosphere. I’d have to ask my blogger fellows what’s their take anyway. I bet it was way too noisy and messy for their taste. Not everyone is coming from the festive and loud South of Europe!


I came to Portugal to take part in a 2 weeks food tour around the country after winning the Portugal Food Stories contest by Aptece along with other 4 international bloggers. Anyway, all the opinions here are my own. Read all the articles about this awesome trip here.
