In the southern edge of the district, Bussaco is an excellent place to spend a few (or many) very relaxing days.
Its proximity to Luso offers good alternatives in lodging, and in Mealhada, the most celebrated suckling pig.
A fabulous forest, hiding a marvelous hotel only for the chosen, Luso and Curia spas at short distance, and the suckling pig of Mealhada (don't you dare the crime of thinking that it may not be the best in the world!).
What else do you need to understand that, travelling along Portugal, this is an absolute must see?
The park of Bussaco is one of the top attractions in the centre of Portugal.
Very well conceived and maintained, showing a rich selection of exotic plants, it is a relaxing destination to thousands of visitors, and a mandatory visit to those who stay near it, in the thermal stations of Luso or Curia.
Its marked trekking circuits are easy and comfortable.
