ln the natural settings of Serra da Estrela, Gouveia is a tranquil area, of ancient houses, sculptured gardens and much more art that meets the eye or that hangs up on the walls in the local museums.

It is the typical things of Serra da Estrela that please more the sight and the taste: the mountain cheese, the woollen blankets, the lamb or simply the heritage of many shepherds who were the parents and the grandchildren of Viriato, who have fought legions, who have ploughed the slopes with rye and who have planted grapevines with wine that tastes of Dão.
