Between rivers and mountains, the city of Covilhã is one of the gateway to Serra da Estrela.
Land of Lusitanian shepherds in its origin, it was regained from the Moors by King D. Sancho I who protected it with walls and established itself as a strategic point during the Middle Ages, especially with King D. Dinis, when he put into practice the reinforcement of defense of the territory.
This realenga village, title granted by D. Manuel who gave it a new charter in 1510, was also a land of discoverers. Infante D. Henrique, the Navigator, received the title of Lord of Covilhã from his father, King D. João I, after conquering Ceuta in 1415.
Here Pêro da Covilhã was born, an explorer that King D. João II sent to the East and whose information made the discovery of the sea route to India by Vasco da Gama more certain.
One of the obligatory references in Covilhã is the art of wool, which started in the time of D. Sancho I and developed by the Jewish community that settled here since then and remained until the century. XV. The textile industry, which produced all the uniforms of the Portuguese army during the reign of D. João V, gained a new impetus in 1763 under the action of Marquis of Pombal who founded the Royal Fabrics Factory here, becoming the largest center of wool production across the country. The resulting economic growth led Covilhã to become a city in 1870.
A visit to the heritage does not dispense with the old Jewish quarter, with its narrow streets and Manueline windows, the Chapel of São Martinho, the Chapel of Santa Cruz and the Wool Museum.
