Embraced by history and flavours

3 Regions Route

Let's go... to the Centre of the Country, to taste incomparable cheeses that tell the stories of the very lands in which they are produced. We start by getting to know the Serra da Estrela PDO cheese up close and then move on to the Beira Baixa PDO cheese and the Rabaçal PDO cheese. Let's discover traditions and ways of life.

Let's... take a deep breath and feel the breeze of breathtaking landscapes. Let's put on the shepherd's skin and take the flock to the meadow. We will mould the cheese with our own hands and see unique cheeses born in the world.

Let's... taste the best flavours, discover a thousand and one ways to enjoy these cheeses and pair them with the best wines in the region.

Let's... talk to the protagonists and listen to the stories of those who, with a twinkle in their eye, keep a precious legacy.

Let's... feel embraced by history and flavours. Let's feel at home!
