Located on the top of the Talhadas Mountain, at 675 meters height, the Santa Maria da Serra viewpoint offers, in clear days, extraordinary views over the city of Sever do Vouga and the lagoon coast of Aveiro. It is a religious place of worship and Santa Maria da Serra is honored in the chapel next to the viewpoint, with a great festivity on the second Sunday of September, as well as “Senhora das Areias, da Praia e do Mar” (Lady of the Sands, the Beach and the Sea), which can be seen from there. This day is also known as the Familily Picnic Day. The viewpoint and the chapel of Santa Maria da Serra are inserted in a very pleasant forested area, dominated by pine trees and other large trees, that provide nice shadows. This palce has a picnic area.
Access to the point of interest: by car; easy
