SOME GREAT DAY TRIPS 

Nazaré

Nazaré has become a popular tourist attraction, advertising itself, internationally, as a picturesque seaside village. Located on the Atlantic coast, it has long sandy beaches. 

 

Fátima

The shrine of Our Lady of Fátima attracts a large number of pilgrims. Every year on May 13 and October 13 pilgrims fill the road that leads to the shrine, the significant dates of Fátima apparitions.

 

Coimbra

Coimbra has a rich and diverse history. In the mid-12th century, the first Portuguese King, Afonso Henriques, turned Coimbra into the capital of the new Kingdom.

 

Tomar

The city of Tomar is one of great historical significance, and also charm and beauty. During the 12th and 13th centuries it was the headquarters for the Knights Templar in Portugal.

 

Óbidos

Óbidos is a wonderful example of a fully walled city in good condition. The walled town is filled with charming nooks and crannies and secret pathways and interesting restaurants. 

Serra da Estrela

Where the landscape is breathtaking… stroll through it slowly. At Serra da Estrela time gets a new pace, through the winding paths and boulders that seem to perch in the air. Visit the beautiful Schist Villages of Piodao, Monsanto and many more stunning areas.

Aveiro - Little Venice of Portugal

Aveiro is perhaps one of the country’s most unique and inspiring cities, and yet it remains a “hidden gem” that features on surprisingly few travel itineraries for visitors planning their trip to the western flank of the Iberian Peninsula.

Golega

This stunning Old Town is the Horse Capital of Portugal and is a must see.

Casal de Sao Simao

A delightful Schist Village in a beautiful setting - home to a fabulous restaurant.
