Serra de Estrela

    
Extraordinary mountain road in Guarda District
A cache by : gozamite

This has not yet been found

We choose the N339 road for this Serra de Estrela road because it's the best known route. This N339 is between Covilha (in the east) and Seia (in the west) -villages in the Guarda District. The maximum elevation is 1993 meters, but this can be reached if you choose to ride to the highest point of the summit 700m south from the mainroad.
The N339 offers you thrilling fast sweeping corners. Even the hairpins are not too tight which means you can really keep up some very nice speed here!
The views are very nice from many points. One of the most amazing point is the Lagoa Comprida (reservoir) 10km's northwest from the summit. The roaute takes you sweeping the dam and you're riding below the water level there. If you have the chance to walk up to the top of the dam it will be worth it!
