The 700 m-high Mountain Village of Lapa dos Dinheiros is located in the Natural Park of Serra da Estrela, nestled upon the Alva River and Caniça river stream. This is actually “the” place to contemplate the Mondego River.
The cosy Mountain Village of Lapa dos Dinheiro is surrounded by a forest of century-old chestnut trees, inhabited by an interesting profusion of fauna and flora species, some of them quite rare in Portugal. Caniça river stream has also kept its own secrets: the waterfalls; the so-called “devil’s hons”, a peculiar rocky formation and Sumo hole, a place where water runs underground.
The romantic river beach of Lapa dos Dinheiros is a truly idyllic place, beautifully placed at the heart of a landscape of imposing rocks, several waterfalls and ancient chestnut forests.
This river beach has a support bar, a meal park with barbecue, bathroom, first-aid office and parking.
Casas da Lapa Nature & Spa Hotel is the perfect place to stay. An exquisite service and all modern comfort at the heart of a breath-taking natural setting.
