Night walk "in search of the stars"

40,00

In this night walk we will walk through espinhaço de Cão, a trail with extraordinary landscapes over the magnificent Covão de Ferro Valley, which will take us to Covão do Boi where you can observe the curious geological forms formed by the last Ice Age to which serra estrela was subjected. We will head towards the Tower past the ruin of the old cable car. Here let yourself be dazzled by the beautiful night landscape with the villages around serra da Estrela. A little more and we'll be at the Tower for the second part of our walk.

We will arrive at the Tower where we will taste a hot chocolate to toast the arrival at the summit and warm the spirit. Here we will observe the stars as you have never seen them, away from the light pollution of the big cities, through a large telescope and hear the explanation of what we are observing in the immense starry sky.
