Benavente is situated approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Lisbon, the country's capital.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow glimpse into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So try to allow a few days to explore Lisboa e Vale do Tejo's other cultural and natural attractions. Santarem, lays 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south, while Montijo is situated 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast.
Santarem, is another interesting place to explore. It is about 19 miles (31 kilometers) from Benavente and offers a great selection of tourist attractions, for example Igreja da Santa Clara, Igreja do Seminario and Igreja de Marvila. Portas do Sol, Torre das Cabacas and Igreja da Graca are also good places to spend time.
To experience the spiritual life of Benavente, be sure to visit the region's monasteries.
The wider region offers plenty of activities for travelers who enjoy water. Boating and canoeing are just two of the ways to have fun upon the water here.
When it's time to leave this special place, bid a fond Adeus (farewell) to the characters you have met and the places you've seen.
