Textile Industry

The history and culture of Estrela are intrinsically linked with pastoralism and woolen production, a fact that boosted the population growth on the fringes of the mountain, especially during the first and part of the second half of the 20th century. Traveling through spaces related to the textile industry is to delve into Estrela’s own history and into the human evolution of this Mountain, whose reflections are still visible in the landscape itself.
