Central Portugal is a region of Portugal ranging from the Atlantic coast to the mountainous interior.



Other destinations[edit]


Get in[edit]

Central Portugal lies between the country's two most important urban areas, centred around Lisbon and Porto, and thus benefits from the transit connections between them. In particular, frequent long-distance services Alfa Pendular and Intercidades call at Coimbra, from where you can continue to other locations in the Centro.

This strategic position, coupled with relatively small population, did not necessitate for Centro to have its own airport. One can use ones in either Lisbon in Porto, who both have excellent international connections, and take a bus or train from there. There is a small aerodrome near Coimbra though for private pilots.

Get around[edit]


Castle of Óbidos
  • Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima (Marian Shrine).


Visit the mountains of Estrela, Marofa, Gardunha, Lousa, Caramulo, and Bussaco.
