Central Portugal

A land of sleepy stone villages and hill-top castles, central Portugal provides a natural link between the cool, green meadows of the north and the hot, dry pastures of the south. The region’s highlights include Serra da Estrela, the beautiful Buçaco Forest and the ancient university city of Coimbra.
