Santarem District

(4.3/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, historic sites, sightseeing
The heart of Portugal, Santarem District spent a good portion of its history under foreign rule, assimilating Roman, Visigoth, and Moorish culture into its own. Conquered by Portugal's first king in 1147, Santarem developed into a major farming area and today boasts a long history of bull breeding and traditional bullfighting. The district's eponymous capital, situated on the fertile plains fed by the Tagus River, is a major sightseeing destination. Known locally as the "Gothic Capital," the city boasts the country's largest ensemble of Gothic churches, as well as outstanding examples of Renaissance, Mannerist, and Baroque architecture. Use the capital as your base for tours of the surrounding countryside, known for its bull farms and wineries. Make your own Santarem District vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Portugal vacation route planner.
