A beautiful place filled with castles and incredible views, just 30 minutes away by train from Lisbon. It's in a mountainous area with a subtropical micro climate that has a unique vegetation.
Waterfalls, secret pools, old villages, viewpoints, trails and outdoor experiences always accompanied by regional products and "vinho verde".
Get on one of the boats called Moliceiros and enjoy the city from the level of canals. It’s a great way to spend about an hour in a relaxing way and to get an overview of what is where in the city. The student tickets cost about 8 euros while standard price is something about 11 to 15. Nevertheless, I believe it’s worth the cost as you will experience something unique, will hear the stories about the city, various places, architecture, cuisine, and even the economic aspect of the place.
