The city of Fundão stands out for the enormous quality of a unique product: the cherry, the main ingredient of the Cherry Festival which occurs annually in June. The whole landscape is dominated by cherry and is covered with red-passion! Fundão offers countless events throughout the year, such as the Transhumance Festival – Chocalhos. You can not miss the exceptional landscape setting of Serra da Gardunha, the renovated Picadeiro Palace in Alpedrinha and the Historical Village of Castelo Novo. Here you can find quality hotels at the forefront of modernity which will surprise you.
To pick up cherries is a way of celebrating our senses. It is a feast enriched by different textures of regional cherry varieties. Their common denominator is being red, fleshy and delicious.
Noble, elegant and sumptuous, resting upon the calm lap of Gardunha, it has the sweetness of days going by as cherries are tasted.
The enchantment of the east side of Gardunha mountain range. In July wind miracles take place there under the new moon.
