Lousada Vacation Packages

Lisbon, the national capital, is roughly 180 miles south of Lousada.

Many of our most cherished moments are made at the beach, so why don't you pay a visit to two of the area's most visited coastlines? Redonda Beach, 25 miles to the west and Live Beach, 55 miles to the southeast, are top picks.

Devote a day to discovering the splendor of the nearby natural areas. A short 25 miles away from Lousada is where you'll come across Parque Natural do Alvao, while the equally worthy Canicada Dam is situated 25 miles away.

Sports lovers should see the Vitória S.C. in action. Estadio D. Alfonso Henriques is in Guimaraes, 11 miles north of Lousada. Be sure to wear white and black, the team colors.

To see another part of this area, make plans to go to Amarante to visit Igreja de Sao Goncalo and Ponte de Sao Goncalo. A detour through Celorico de Basto is another great option. It is 15 miles away, and is home to Ludico de Celorico de Basto Park and Celorico De Basto Tourism Center.

When it's time to explore beyond Lousada, take a trip to a regional center that's close by. Peso da Regua is around 25 miles away and boasts visitor attractions, like Peso da Regua Parish Church, Alameda dos Capitaes Park and the Dourocaves Winery. Douro Museum and Museu do Douro are also worth checking out.

Often, an area's heart and soul will be found in its simmering pots and pans.

Any well-versed foodie should be sure they try rojões (braised pork chunks) and cozido à portuguesa (portuguese stew) before enjoying other examples of local foods.

Why not indulge in a locally-loved treat, arroz doce (sweet rice)?

Treat yourself with a pint of Coral, and unwind with one of this region's local favorites.

Be sure to try out aguardente bagaceira, a common local spirit.

Appreciate the aroma of a fine wine from Douro Valley. Choose from bairrada or Soalheiro, and ask for a carafe to share.

At the end of your time in this special place, don't forget to bid an affectionate "Adeus."
