The area between Portugal’s two biggest cities, Lisbon and Porto, is referred to as Central Portugal. Stretching from the Atlantic Coast into the mountain regions in the East, it includes some of Portugal’s most beloved sites. Towns like Tomar, Obidos and Coimbra offer visitors a fascinating look into Portugal’s past and present cultures, and Aveiro rests as the Venice of Portugal. Fatima, one of the world’s most important pilgrimage sites, is a must-see as well. From Portugal’s oldest university to Templar castles and medieval city walls, the towns are sure to enchant all who explore their streets. And do not skip the coastal villages either, along the Silver Coast you will find beautiful villages like Nazare, home to monster surf waves that can easily reach over 50 feet high!
