all explained by comments above.
please note, there is a route from nearly Torre to Manteigas through the almost bottom of the glacier valley quite awesome. However, on july 2012 it was on maintainance. workers were giving a new tarmac to the route, wich means a very good route is about to be discovered.

Parece ser que es una ruta frecuentada. Me encontré con varias motos haciendo pasadas al inicio desde Covilha. El asfalto es bueno y las curvas espectaculares. Las vistas son espléndidas casi desde cualquier punto. Ojo con el frío, aun en verano si cogemos nubes o niebla podemos pasar verdadero frío, doy fe.

This road is popular with Portugal local bikers and has some spectacular viewpoints. It passes through a ski resort area, a shock for Portugal, after rising from the town to a flattish mountain top at 2000 metres. There is an interesting diversion to the right, signposted Manteigas or Valley of the Glacier,which after a mile or so gets to the head of a perfectly formed Glacier Valley.Back on the main route there are some good bends and you can finnish in the village of Seia where you can find a number of good restaurants.
