The highest city in Portugal at over 1000m, Guarda has a Gothic cathedral, a castle and several medieval gates, of which the one at the Torre dos Ferreiros (Blacksmiths’ Tower) is the most interesting.

The Road

Leaving Guarda, the camino becomes a Roman road almost immediately and this continues for most of the descent to Ramalhosa, making it one of the most interesting stretches on the entire Caminho Nascente.
