Nature lovers came to the right place due to the abundant wildlife in the region.

Go visit the river Zêzere. The watershed of this healing river has an impressive landscape and lovely places to go for a swim. One of these places is the nearby reservoir of Cabril. The small Ribeira de Pêra which flows right through Castanheira de Pera, has countless deserted, fairylike places to go for a swim.

In het nabijgelegen, bergachtige natuurgebied Serra da Lousã vind je charmante dorpjes van leisteen (Aldeias de Xisto). Het gesteente dat zo typerend is voor deze omgeving. Er lopen vele paden door dit gebied die wachten om ontdekt worden.

De Serra da Estrela ligt iets verder weg en hier bevindt zich de hoogste berg van Portugal, welke 1991 meter boven het landschap uit torent. Het landschap is ronduit ruig en indrukwekkend. Anders dan in de noordelijke helft van Europa bestaan de bergen in de Serra da Estrela veelal uit graniet.

Dit is slechts een kleine selectie uit de vele mogelijkheden die deze haast onontdekte streek van Portugal te bieden heeft.
