THE LARGEST LAKES IN PORTUGAL

1350€ per person

The center of Portugal is bathed by several rivers that are born in mountains of the country that become the largest artificial lakes of the Iberian Peninsula.

It is in this hydrographic setting that we find several large dams, extraordinary river beaches and reservoirs to lose sight of. Warm and normally peaceful waters, boat trips or fishing and a unique peace, in a perfect program to retemper forces in a few days.

DAY 3 | MONTARGIL DAM

It is the heart of northern Alentejo, which beats strongly in the dam that bears its name. Montargil is a village, it's a lake, it's paradise. It is a typical Alentejo village that invites us to let ourselves be carried away in time, intoxicated by the beauty of the space, where every ride to the old rhythm - by bike or on foot, by marina or through the fields - is an unforgettable experience!

Venture over the water from the dam or on a horseback ride. Visit the narrow streets of the village, discover architectural remains of the eighteenth century. Discover the Mora Fluviary, where you can meet some native aquatic species, in a playful and pedagogical space. Eat... migas, eggs, cation or tomato soup, soaked or sericaia, river fish or pure Alentejo meat... Drink... Never to forget.

DAY 5 | TOMAR - DAM DE CASTELO DE BODE - SANTAREM - LISBON

If you are in the region you can not fail to pay a visit to Dornes, a peninsula that served as a military strategic point in the early days of nationality. This small town preserved important historical monuments, namely a Templar tower and a small church erected by Queen St. Elizabeth, in honor of Our Lady of The Weeby.

Santarém, located on top, is nicknamed Cidade Miradouro. The history of this beautiful city is intertwined with the work of the Order of Christ, successor of the Templars, who financially supported the Discoveries. This connection is also reflected in the Santarém of our days, in monuments so important to the history of Portuguese art.
