Central Portugal is filled with exciting, interesting places to explore. Below, you’ll find just some of the incredible locations that are well worth discovering when you stay in our attractive holiday accommodation.
Castle of Penela is located in Penela Municipality in Coimbra District. The Castle was built on a hill dominating the area and used to be a stronghold protecting Coimbra in times of the reconguista.The Castle of Penela and the neighboring castle Montemor-o-Velho are both fine examples of defensive structures of that period.
This historically important and interesting Castle is just a 20 minute drive from your apartment and as it is on the way to the Roman ruins of Cominbriga, you may consider making a full day of it and visit both.
The town of Penela has some very nice restaurants, bars and cafés so why not stop off for some refreshments..
Conímbriga is a walled urban settlement, encircled by a curtain of stone structures approximately 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) long.
A visitors' centre (which includes restaurant/café and gift-shop) was constructed to display objects found by archaeologists during their excavations, including coins, surgical tools, utensils and ceramics.
This very interesting place is just a 30 minute drive from your apartment. Why not also visit the fine restaurant there.
I can’t recommend Obidos highly enough, whilst you’re there and if you have any energy left, why not also have a meal or a snack at any one of the beach restaurant’s at the wonderful resort of Peniche, just a short distance from Obidos.
This is a very tourist friendly place to visit with good access to exhibits and views.
Pombal Castle is just a 30 minute drive from your apartment.
