About HI – Penhas da Saúde Youth Hostel

The Youth Hostel of Penhas da Saúde is located in the middle of the Serra da Estrela Nature Reserve, at an altitude of about 1500 meters.

Picture this: spectacular landscape with steep mountains, pure white snow in the winter and the chance to go skiing or snowboarding. If it's too chilly for you, you can always stay indoors and use the hostel kitchen to roast a typical Beira sausage, which you can have with Serra cheese.

When the sun is shining, take a ride to Fundão, Seia, Gouveia, Manteigas and Belmonte. When the evening comes, the students in Covilhã liven up the town.
