Ovoa is situated about 130 miles (209 kilometers) northeast of Lisbon, the country's capital.
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the wider personality of a region. So try to set aside some time to discover Centro's other sights and attractions. Journey 17 miles (27 kilometers) east to Mealhada, where you can visit the National Forest of Bussaco and Palacio do Bucaco.
When it's time to spread your wings, why not check out the nearest center. Coimbra lies 20 miles (32 kilometers) away and features sights like Estadio Cidade de Coimbra, Portugal dos Pequenitos and Conimbriga. Jardim Botanico, Praca da Republica and Biblioteca Joanina are some other visitor attractions to see for those who have time left.
Those with a love of history won't want to miss the area's fine old traditional villages, castles and fortresses. Experience a little culture, learning and lore with a little sunshine and fresh air at the region's much-loved gardens, open-air museums and lighthouses.
Enjoy a break from seeing the sights and cool off with a spot of stand-up paddle boarding or boating. Take a big breath and let your worries melt away as you have a go at the area's gentler pastimes such as beach combing and bird watching.
Everything has to end, but be rest assured, when you have to say "Adeus", you'll still have wonderful photos and memories to remember your time here.
