Hi dear TE friends

Place: Serra da Estrela - Mountain Range of the Star

Theme: Snow on the highest mountain of Portugal

Serra da Estrela (English: Mountain range of the Star) is the highest mountain range in Portugal and includes mainland Portugal's highest peak, which has a natural altitude of 1993 m (around 6541 feet).
The mountain range is about 100 km long and is 30 km at its widest point. It is formed from a huge granite ridge that once formed the southern frontier of the country. Due to its bizarrely shaped crags and gorges, mountain streams and lakes, beautiful forests and magnificent views, the area ranks among Portugals outstanding scenic attractions.


I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE.
