Housed in a typical schist house, in the cosy village of Valhelhas, 30 minutes away from Guarda and 15 minutes away from the Historical Village Belmonte, the restaurant Vallecula is the right place to taste a typically Portuguese cuisine, full of the most surprising flavours of Serra da Estrela region.
It opened its doors in 2000. The decor of this welcoming restaurant is quite remarkable, for it will be hard not to notice several roosters inhabiting the room! A place that feels like home. A Portuguese home.
Among the main gastronomic specialities you must definitely try, it is worth highlighting: chickpea mousse, grilled veal with garlic, pork loin seasoined with aromatic herbs and stewed potatoes, apple pure, stewed beans with sausage, Serra da Estrela cheese with marmelade and crème brûlée.
