Guarda District

Guarda: Discover the district of Guarda, a memorable destination where story-telling monuments guide you through Portugal’s earliest days. Originally founded in the 12th Century by the second king of Portugal, D. Sancho I, the capital of Guarda lies in the mountainous landscape of Serra da Estrela and is regarded as the highest city in the country, standing at an impressive height of 1,056 metres (3,500 feet). Torre is the highest peak in the range (1,993 metres/6,500 feet), as well as the highest in mainland Portugal and is home to the famous ski resort of the Serra da Estrela Natural Park.
