About the city:
Covilhã is a city and a municipality in the Centro region, Portugal. It is located in the Cova da Beira subregion, more specifically in the district of Castelo Branco. The municipal holiday is October 20.
Sometimes referred to as town of wool and snow (also called portuguese Manchester), Covilhã is one of the main urban centres of the historical Beira Interior region. The proximity of the mountains offers a dramatic scenery and a great environment for those fond of hiking, camping, mountain climbing and skiing.
The city of Covilhã towers between 450 and 800 metres (1,476 and 2,624 feet) above the sea level, thus the mountain landscape is ever present. The larger municipality has 555.6 km² (214.5 sq mi) of territory and includes several localities distributed across 31 civil parishes.
The climate in Covilhã is Mediterranean, moderately cold in the winter and relatively warm in the summer.
Serra da Estrela is the highest mountain range in Continental Portugal. It includes mainland Portugal's highest point at 1,993 metres (6,539 feet) above mean sea level. This point is not a distinctive mountain summit, but rather the highest point in a plateau, being known as Torre ("Tower" in English). Torre is an unusual summit in that it is accessible by a paved road.
There is the Vodafone Ski Resort, the only ski resort in Portugal, 20 km (12.4 mi) away from the city, actually in the neighbouring municipality of Seia.
Covilhã has a public university - the University of Beira Interior (UBI), which was founded in 1979 and awards all university academic degrees (licentiate "licenciatura", master's and doctorate degrees) in several fields ranging from medicine to mathematics to sports sciences to aeronautical engineering to cinema, among many others, being the only portuguese university that awards a degree in aeronautical engineering.
The nearest airports are located in Lisbon and Porto. From these two cities, Covilhã can be very easily reached both by train and coach. It is also possible to reach Covilhã directly by coach from abroad.
Covilhã is located, less than 300 km from Lisbon and Porto, the two biggest cities in Portugal and just 400 km from the Spanish capital,Madrid. Several national and international bus routes pass Covilhã, so it is easy and practical to reach almost all destinations.
Covilhã used to have an aerodrome. The Municipal Aerodrome of Covilha, the oldest in the country (in 1946 there landed the first aircraft), with the IATA code COV, was the main airport serving the region of Cova da Beira. Located SE (Southeast) of the city of Covilhã, was demolished during the construction of the Data Center PT Covilha . When it was still in operation, flights were made to and from Bragança, Vila Real and Lisbon.
