Such a nice place, a historical landmark. For people who loves horses, nature and charming place. We booked our visit, and we did the visit with another couple. Our guide was Inês, who gave us all the information we ask. At the end of the visit I made my baptism horse riding, on a Purebred Lusitano horse.

Ponte Romana de Vila Formosa

Reviewed By Nuno F - Melbourne, Australia

A construction that still stands perfect 21 centuries after it has been built is something to be revered. It is a testimony to the finest engineering work ever made without using cranes or heavy machinery. Minor reparations occured between 2001 and 2003.
On the downside the surroundings of the bridge namely the picnic area and accesses are run down and definitely deserved some attention. The bridge more than deserves it.

This company does tailor made tours (among others). We decid to have an afternoon with friends and family making cheese at Azeitão. In an old farm that now does this kind of workshops so that the young (and the not so young...) can discover how the famous Azeitão cheese is made.

Museu Municipal de Alter do Chao

Reviewed By dianinha m - Lisbon, Portugal

Esta casa construída em 1649 e reformada profundamente em 1732 mostra-nos como vivia uma família importante daquela época. É pena uma parte da casa não ter sido recuperada aparentemente por discórdia entre os herdeiros e o município. Vale igualmente passear pelos jardins. De referir a simpatia da funcionária que nos atendeu.

Ruinas Romanas Ferragial d' El Rei

Reviewed By Nuno L - Lisbon, Portugal

Desconhecia o rico património romano que existe nesta região. Encontrar vestígios desse tempo tão bem conservados e poder beneficiar de guia que nos acompanha na sua visita é fantástico. É algo que não acontece todos os dias. Fantástico. Além disso, as ruínas tem pormenores e riquezas únicas.
