Chestnuts track

The “Castanheiros Route”  presents a set of landscapes unified by the presence and memory of the identity and emblematic tree of Fundão: the chestnut tree (Castanheiro). The tree “bread”, for centuries rooted in the North slope of the Mountain forming one of the first national soutos. This species has been documented in Gardunha since the 13th century. It echoes in the tradition that King D. Dinis will have had reforested this green border of Cova da Beira.
