Estrela Natural Park: Serra da Estrela Nature Park is the largest protected area in Portugal, with its 1000 square km. It includes the Serra da Estrela mountain range, which is mainly granite, but which also has a few shale outcrops. Some major Portuguese rivers (Mondego, Zêzere, Alva) have their sources within the boundaries of the Nature Park, which also contains vestiges of ancient glaciers (U-shaped valleys, lagoons, erratic granite boulders, hollows). The park is home to the highest point in mainland Portugal, Torre, which reaches a height of almost 2000 m.
