AN EPIC CHALLENGE IN THE SERRA DA ESTRELA NATURAL PARK
The Serra da Estrela Granfondo offers the opportunity for all practitioners and lovers of cycling to live inside the emotions and the challenge of the high mountain stages in the only destination with these characteristics in Portugal. The arrival at the mythical high of the Tower, at an altitude of 1993 meters is always magical and marked by strong emotions.
The city of Seia will once again host this 7th edition, where the entire headquarters of this event will operate. The village of Manteigas will be another important milestone in this challenge, framing the passage of all participants, before touring the magnificent Zêzere Glacier Valley on the final ascent to Alto da Torre. The Serra da Estrela Granfondo takes place entirely in the Serra da Estrela Natural Park, visiting some of the most emblematic places and landscapes of this protected area. Thus, the effort to overcome the longest climbs found in Portugal will certainly be offset by the environment and the images of the only high mountain scenery in our country.
Athletes who do not intend to face the biggest challenge will be able to opt for Mediofondo, being a great option for those who want to have a first experience in the conquest of Alto da Torre It will be an epic challenge for many and a true Queen Stage for everyone.
