CENTRAL PORTUGAL TOURISM

World Heritage monuments and traditional seaside villages


FIND CENTRAL PORTUGAL HOTELS »


Batalha Tomar Some of Portugal's finest monuments are in the center of the country. Three of them are World Heritage Sites: the magnificent abbey in Batalha, the country's biggest church in Alcobaça, and the castle of the Knights Templar in Tomar.

Along the coast are some popular beaches, especially by the colorful fishing town of Nazaré and São Martinho do Porto, from where it is also possible to reach the world-famous shrine of Fatima.

A convenient base from which to visit Fatima or the great abbeys at Batalha and Alcobaça, is Leiria, a growing city with a charming old town overlooked by an imposing castle.

Other interesting castles are found nearby in Porto de Mós, Almourol, and in Obidos, one of the country's best preserved medieval villages. For an off-the-beaten-path experience, spectacular underground caverns can be visited at Mira D'Aire.

Top 5 EXPERIENCES in Central Portugal

1. Admiring the architectural wonders of Batalha and Alcobaça.
