Lenda Viriato, more than a restaurant, an experience
Lenda Viriato appears from the desire of returning to the origins of Portugal
Built in 1905, the building, where is now the restaurant Lenda Viriato, was the community wood fire oven from Unhais da Serra. The local people from the village would come to this community oven to bake their bread.
Time passed by, this habit gradually disappeared and the community wood fire oven closed its doors. Hence, the building got more and more deteriorated.
In 2009, the Reis family and Diana bought this building, reclaiming its magnificence and restoring its rightful place in the History of Unhais. The thematic restaurant Lenda Viriato has strong entertaining and cultural features and it’s a new concept where originality stands out and at the same time it exalts the History of Portugal.
Here, you can go back more than 2000 years, into a thrilling experience in Lusitânia where a tribe of shepherds fights with all audacity against the rage of the Roman Empire.
Let yourself be part of this experience and be surprised by Viriato, the leader of the Lusitan people, and his courage. Follow his life, full of battles, victories, friendship and treason.
Through the big wooden door, get into the shelter of the Lusitan people and
Let yourself be carried away by the primordial paths of our History… Lenda Viriato, more than a restaurant, an experience!
Lenda Viriato presents a varied and regional cuisine
Here you can taste the best flavours of the gastronomical heritage from Serra da Estrela.
A common passion
This group got together in 2009 and started the company Reis & Diana Lda, always believing in the potential of one of the villages of Serra da Estrela, and its amazing landscapes and famous touristic potentialities.
The restaurant Lenda Viriato appears from the desire of returning to the origins of Portugal, by remembering one of the first heroes known by our History, Viriato, the great leader of Lusitânia!
