A card I got from one of the Portuguese meetings....I just love getting the meeting cards...makes me feel special when they think of me :)
Located in inland central Portugal, this beautiful area called the Serra da Estrela is in fact a protected National Park. It is a wonderful place to explore. In the summer it is not getting too hot, and on a clear day you might even be able to see the sea over 150 kilometres in the distance! There is plenty to see and do. Dramatic crags and ravines makes this area a stunningly beautiful drive or hike. There are several walking trails. In winter this magical area is transformed into a glittering white kingdom.
The Serra da Estrela is also famous for its wonderful cheese called "Queijo da Serra", as well as its smoked sausages.
the card is from a set of 8 stamps issued in 2009 showing the Women of the Portuguese Republic. On this one Angelina Vidal is portrayed, a poet, journalist and professor.
