Penhas da Saúde is a beautiful mountainside village situated right in the heart of the wide Estrela Mountain range, nearby Covilhã.
Situated at about 1500 meters high, Penhas da Saúde get own life when Winter arrives, when it is filled with snow and visitors.
The mountainside landscape of pure fresh air and peace of mind is the greatest highlight of this place, that also provides accommodation and tourist facilities, like picturesque mountain “chalets”.
Once, Penhas da Saúde were mostly known as a Thermal complex, perfect for respiratory and lungs problems, as it is still observable on its big Sanatorium building that is now on the process to be transformed in a luxury hotel.
