The Viewpoint of Santa Helena Mountain Range is located in the foothills of the Montemuro mountains. Situated high in the Sierra, is one of the most superb sights on the Varosa Valley. As far as the eye can can be seen the houses, crops and pastures. The horizon is shown dotted with fine examples of medieval architecture as Salzedas Monastery, the Church of the Monastery of St. John of Tarouca, the Tower of Ucanha, single copy in the Iberian Peninsula fortified bridge. At the top of Serra de Santa Helena there is a shrine and altar, and at the foot lies the village of Tarouca.
