Leguas Sem Barreiras

Tours from Lisbon to Sintra, Cascais, Evora, Fatima, Batalha, Nazare and Obidos.

Reviewed By Guy D - Mindanao, Philippines

We, a family of 8 members, arrived at Portugal hoping we could find means to reach Fatima. The hotel recommended "Leguas" tours. It was the best. Our guide, Vera, the owner, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. On the way to Fatima, Vera gave a good account of the places we passed by as well as its historical facts. She even explained a brief background of the apparition at Fatima. She left us for our spiritual activities, and came back just as we have finished our visit. Afterwards, she brought us to a cafeteria for good food. And for some retail therapy, she brought us to shop for souvenir items. "Leguas Sem Barreiras" is highly recommended. You will enjoy your tour, guaranteed! Thank you very much Vera. More power to your company.

Loures Shopping

Reviewed By Marc K - Bremen, Germany

I was expecting something more. The mall has two floors on the basement floor there's a big Contingente and a big Worten, surrounded by some small shops. The upper floor is a bit better concerning the store and you find the food area there. Overall it's an average mall, I've seen better ones in Portugal and especially in the vicinity of Lisbon.

Já que estamos de visita ao Parque da Cidade de Loures, iremos com certeza nos deparar com este edifício. Era a entrada do pavilhão de Macau na Expo 98 que foi recolocado aqui.
É claro uma cópia, mas podemos sempre "perder" um tempo para admirar a sua arquitectura.

Museu Municipal de Loures

Reviewed By Ana S - Lisbon, Portugal

Não é apenas um museu, é um retiro no meio da confusão da cidade.
Espaço excelente com jardins, árvores (também de fruta), 3 miradouros, horta pedagógica, café com esplanada. Museu num antigo convento com capela, dedicado principalmente aos acontecimentos/ população de Loures durante a 1ª grande guerra. Funcionários muito simpáticos
Custo de apenas 1,50€ (grátis aos domingos)
Vale mesmo a pena a visita sempre que possível!

Reviewed By DSeixo - Loures, Portugal

os Restaurantes dentro da vila tornam-se caros. Este restaurante está mesmo à entrada da vila, é preciso ir de carro e o estacionamento é mau. Mas vale a pena! a comida é muito boa, e fica muito mais barato almoçar neste local. Um dose dá para 2 pessoas facilmente. Tem algumas sobremesas caseiras muito boas! Experimentem o bacalhau ou a carne de vaca!

Museu do Vinho e da Vinha de Bucelas

Reviewed By JaninedeBric - Denver, Colorado

The historic DOC or viticultural area of Bucelas has produced wines of note since the time of Lord Wellington, and in particular, the Arinto grape variety is said to have been born here. The modest but well-done museum in Bucelas gives a thorough overview of the region, the grapes, the local winemaking process, and the people. Great examples of the lagares and wine presses used to create local wines are on display. The only concern for non-Portuguese speakers is that most of the displays are in Portuguese. Fortunately, even if it isn't your language, the €1,50 entry fee is well worth it to see the historic objects, maps, and records.
