Imperdível, passeio maravilhoso, com paisagens e lugares históricos. Um dia é pouco para desfrutar deste lugar incrível. more »Unmissable, wonderful ride, with landscapes and historical places. One day is little to enjoy this amazing place.
Gorgeous natural area, Portugal's own green lung! Days and days and days of beautiful sights, peaceful spots, and all the excitement and activities you may want or need. No matter how many times you came already, there's is something more to see and do. I'd say we need over a decade to really get to know this gorgeous place 😁
Just incredible. There's so much to see, we only visited a fraction of the park and were impressed. When you drive your car there, you have to take it slowly - the roads are sometimes extremely narrow. But the park is worth taking your time.
