The Covão d'Ametade is a depression of glacier origin along the Zêzere River banks, once a communal grazing land that was forested with birches to create sheltering conditions to the flocks of sheep during the winter. This unique and beautiful ancient glacial lagoon is located in the Serra da Estrela (Portugal) at the foothill of the Cântaro Magro and it is worth a long visit to explore it.
