Farmer markets are bursting with cherries! They all taste great, but the very best cherries in Portugal come from Fundão, near the Estrela mountain. This region has unique conditions that produce exceptional cherries: granitic soils that are sheltered from the winds and cold days followed by temperate Springs.
Fundão cherries are everywhere in Lisbon; in the menus of the best restaurants and in vans stationed throughout the city. Don’t miss this chance to try Fundão’s red gold!
