Driving from Marvao to Lamego - where to stop on the way?

Hi there,

We will be spending a day driving from Marvao to Lamego to stay at the Six Senses for three nights as part of our upcoming trip next month. I've heard of so many wonderful towns and I am wondering which you think are the best/most worthy of a stop? I have heard great things about Castelo Branco, Guarda, etc. I'd love any recommendations/suggestions for this travel day!

Thanks, Amy

You could go Castelo Branco - Guarda - Viseu - Lamego with maybe a detour to Monsanto (beautiful small town). Or you can do Castelo Branco - Covilhã and go through Serra da Estrela Natural Park - Viseu - Lamego.

Or maybe go completely different and go through Serra do Açor and visit Piodão (https://aldeiasdoxisto.pt/).

When drawing your itinerary take in mind that these are mountainous areas, if your not taking the highways, so count on more travelling time than google maps estimations.
