Reopening of Palácio da Lousã Boutique Hotel
On May 3rd the iconic Palácio da Lousã Boutique Hotel will reopen its doors. Palácio da Lousã was the the former 18th century Palace of Viscountess do Espinhal. Situated in the centre of Lousã, 40 km away from Coimbra, it combines an atmosphere of charm with all the comfort and the technology of a modern hotel.
Cais do Pescado Restaurant
With an unrivalled location at the colourful Mercantéis quay, in Aveiro, a city that never ceases to impress, Cais do Pescado Restaurant is the place to go, if you love fish and sea-related flavours. A place that pays homage to the sea tradition, so deeply rooted in local identity.
Bordallo Pinheiro was one of the most inventive ceramists in Portugal of all times. His timeless works mirror the very essence of the Portuguese soul. Deeply inspired by Nature, his colourful home ware pieces are a key to the Portuguese identity.
The project Queijeiras (Women cheese-makers) is developed by the Mountain Villages network in partnership with the designer Sandra Pinho and Burel Factory. It is simultaneously a tribute to the crucial role played by the women who work so hard in cheese-making, creating Serra da Estrela cheese, an outstanding product with national and international recognition, but also a means of financing their training courses.
Aldeia Velha panoramic swing
The panoramic swing of Aldeia Velha is more than a landmark in the landscape. It is a tribute to an ancestral tradition of Sabugal, the so-called “capeia arraiana” (classified national intangible heritage). Beautifully placed at the top of the mountain Serra do Homem de Pedra next to the Chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Prazeres, the patron saint of Aldeia Velha village, this fork-shaped panoramic swing offers an unrivalled view over the city of Guarda and Serra da Estrela.
Paço dos Cunhas
Set in a beautiful 17th century building, Paço dos Cunhas, located in the wine-producing village of Santar - 16km away from Viseu - was restored by Global Wines, becoming one of the most prestigious wine tourism locations in Portugal.
Santar Garden Village
The heart of Santar is made of granite and noble buildings, but also several tanks, fountains and walls. Behind these walls there are gardens in terraces. Santar Garden Village is a project that was born in 2013 to tear walls apart, build bridges, uniting wills and bringing gardens together.
