Pastoralism was, for many years, one of the most relevant activities of the Serra da Estrela in general and Manteigas in particular.
Early in the morning, the animals (goats and sheep) were milked and then went looking for the best pastures so they could produce good milk.
It is this experience that we invite you to live: to leave early to meet the flock, to participate in milking, to go out with the animals and accompany them together with the shepherd. Let yourself be taken by the landscapes, breathe the fresh air and listen to the stories that the pastor has to tell you.
Finish with an outdoor mountain snack, tasting the fantastic mountain cheese, the goat cheese and the regional ham, accompanied by the traditional bread of the shepherds (rye) and dry cakes.
