Your Destination

The Bussaco Palace is located in the heart of the Bussaco National Park - a natural woodland reserve of 125 acres.

Nearby attractions include the Bairrada Wine Route, the quaint University town of Coimbra (35 km) and the Roman ruins at Conimbriga. (50 km)

The historic Cathedral of Batalha and Monastery of Alcobaça are just an hour away, and for those who enjoy the sea, you can travel to stunning Atlantic beach at Mira, less than an hour's drive away.

If you simply wish to relax, then exploring the grounds is wonderfully tranquil. There are several tracks along the forest to explore -  ask for a map at the reception, where staff will also be happy to arrange a picnic for you to take on your adventure!
