(4.5/5 based on 180,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, zoos & aquariums
Central Portugal contains some of the most prosperous and densely populated areas in Portugal, as well as thick pine and chestnut forests spread across a series of rugged mountain ranges. Inhabited since well before the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula, this part of the country remains best known for its capital Coimbra, which features a historic Old Town retaining much of its medieval look and feel. Beyond the busy regional capital lies Portugal's tranquil countryside, frequently overlooked by foreign visitors despite its ancient sites and hospitable small towns. Along the region's mountainous border with Spain you can tour a series of age-old castles and fortified villages, once the first line of defense against foreign invaders. When using our Portugal family vacation planner to make an itinerary online, Central Portugal holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
