Com os seus prados verdes , abundância de agua e montes productivos ,não admira que os Lusitanos as tribus iberas de onde descendem os Portugueses escolhessem esse lugar para se estabelecer e viver . Os Visigodos e mais tarde os Mouros tambem ai se instalaram , sabendo que desta posição podiam vigiar toda a area cicundante . Linhares fez parte de Portugal no tempo de D.Afonso Henriques que lhe deu o seu primeiro foral em 1169. Apesar da sua importante situação strategica , numa noite de luar , no ano de 1189 ,forças de Leão e Castela invadiram a região para preparar um ataque ao castelo de Celorico . Linhares correu em sua defesa e o exercito enemigo , vendo se rodeado a rectaguarda fugiu . A altitude e o clima fazem desta aldeia histórica um lugar ideal para a prática do parapente e o open celebra-se todos os anos em Agosto. With its green pasture, plentiful of waterand productive mountains , its no wonder that the Lusitanians, the Iberian tribes from which the Portuguese are descended chose this area in which to live . The Visigoths and later the Moors settled here, knowing that they could watch over the whole of the surrounding area . Linhares became part of Portugal in the time of D.Afonso Henriques who granted its first charter in 1169 . despite the stategic position , on a moolight night , in the year 1189 , forces from Leon and Castile invaded the region in preparation for an attack to the casthe of Celorico . Linhares rushed to its defence the enemy army, seeing its rearguard surrounded took flight . The altutude and the climate make this historical village the ideal venue for paragliding too, with the open championship every year in August .

This is part of my Serra da Estrela photo-project that I began in July of 2009: the idea basically is to show by pictures one of the most interesting and beautiful natural areas of Portugal. You can see the entire set ---------------- Serra da Estrela is the highest mountain range in Portugal situated in the center-northwest of the country is also the largest natural conservation area in Portugal and occupies about 1,000 km².

It's absolutely amazing to me that they still have Roman roads that survive in Europe. This one runs a few miles from Linhares down to the next small town. I wish we'd had time to take the three hour walk.
