Tras-os-Montes Vacation Packages
Tras-os-Montes is located approximately 130 miles (209 kilometers) northwest of Albufeira and about 14 miles (23 kilometers) west of the national capital Lisbon.
Escape the hustle and bustle and explore the well-used nature parks for which this area is so renowned. Parque Natural de Montesinho, Parque Natural do Douro Internacional and also Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres are among the more popular of these. All these parks have their own unique plants and animals.
Scattered throughout the region are a few impressive watchtowers and castles. It’s certain the group will have a ball at Montalegre Castle, Braganca Castle and Chaves Castle.
While you are on a walking tour of the city, don't miss the old places of worship. Get an insight into the history of the Igreja de Santa Maria and the Miranda do Douro Cathedral as you view the old structures.
In this culture-loving city, you’ll find some of the engaging museums, such as the Museu do Abade de Bacal, where discerning visitors can learn and be challenged. Savor the atmosphere, ask the staff about any one-off exhibitions, buy something from the gift shop or just enjoy the treasures of the past.
The Tras-os-Montes area’s major heritage and cultural sights sometimes overshadow its less touristed, but equally rewarding spots. It doesn't matter how many fabulous sights you’ve managed to squeeze into your itinerary, no tour of this city is complete without paying a visit to the Forte de Sao Francisco, the Domus Municipalis, the Barregem de Miranda and the Ponte Trajano.
