Street Food Tour
This year, flavors are associated with the festival, with proposals to enjoy food from around the world in what is the Street Food tour, taking place simultaneously and with extended hours in the green park of CISE.
The invitation is to come with family or friends and enjoy the sounds in an ambience with nature, in the heart of the city of Seia.

More information:


We want the Serra da Estrela Granfondo to be a great celebration not only for athletes, but also for companions and spectators. In this sense, the organization will provide companions and spectators with various information that will allow those who are experiencing the event from the outside, to access the best places to see and support the athletes, without harming the dynamics of the event and cyclists.

We remind you that the circulation of support cars for cyclists is not allowed among the athletes during the race.

The prize giving ceremony and conviviality between athletes, companions and organization will be realized at the headquarters, next to the Seia City Hall. However, some initiatives will be created to enhance the festive atmosphere also upon arrival at the Tower, where the timed sector of the course ends and where the companions and spectators can give their full support to the athletes in the final stage of their challenge. In the days prior to the event, the best itineraries will be published for the companions to travel in their own vehicle to the Tower and be able to return to Seia.
