Castelo Novo Historical Village

Reviewed By david o - Cape Town Central, South Africa

We used this place as a stopover to Lisbon. But what a place. One of the most unspoilt villages I have seen in Portugal and superbly restored where necessary. It's like stepping back in time. No tourist rubbish, in fact we were the only four foreigners in town that night. I'm sure there must be much more to explore than we had time to do. If it's on your way have a look.

Museu De Lanificios

Reviewed By Amazon122s - Santa Comba Dao, Portugal

The museum of Lanifícios is a part of the university from the Beira Interior.
So it is a museum of science and technology whose intention is to protect and preserve the industrial techniek of painting textiles.
So this is a place who serves persons interested in Museums and technieks.
It´s location is in the centre of Covilha, with no parking near the university just a few places some higher in the street.
On this moment the entrance is free “On Sunday afternoon” and this from June 29 – 2014.
Notice that you are not able to take pictures or made a video into the museum.
You can also visit the church of “Misericordia” not far from the Museum, and when you can find it the “Cheese” Museum, this because my “tom tom” could not find the address indicated on the Internet.

Serra da Gardunha

Reviewed By Julio M

This mountain completes the circle giving the name to the region "Cova da Beira". You need to go and have a walk through the oaks and the pins.

Museu Arqueologico do Fundao

Reviewed By Joao L - Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

O museu está excelentemente instalado num solar do século XVI, outrora propriedade da família Taborda Falcão.
O preço do ingresso é meramente simbólico (Eur 1,00).
Logo à entrada, vemos um grande menir.
Subindo as escadas, uma simpática funcionária vende-nos os ingressos e dá-nos uma explicação sobre o que podemos ver. As peças expostas vão desde o período paleolítico e enfatizam o período de intervenção romana.
Claro que o ideal é mesmo visitar este museu. Para quem não pode, deixo um significativo lote de fotografias para se ficar com uma ideia superficial do que ali se pode encontrar.

Lovely, unique stonewall village, lost in time and with spectacular views to the mountain range. Definitely worth a visit

Capela do Espirito Santo e Chafariz

Reviewed By Kykymber - Rostov-on-Don, Russia

Проходя мимо посетите эту старинную 14в часовню Святого Духа, архитектурном плане строение сдержано и аскетично, внутреннее убранство скромно и перекликается с таковыми традициями в Португалии. Во дворе имеется небольшой родник и площадка с колоннадой.

Casa do Barro

Reviewed By Joao L - Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

Esta atração não está sempre aberta, pelo que se sugere que se contacte previamente a Junta de Freguesia para viabilizar a visita.
O museu do barro está inserido num bonito palacete e tenta mostrar a história do barro trabalhado pelos locais, através de exemplares físicos e de fotografias.
Seria de todo aconselhável que a Câmara Municipal do Fundão colaborasse financeiramente e promovesse a visita de escolas do concelho a este museu.
