81km (50 miles) NE of Coimbra; 280km (174 miles) N of Lisbon

Set against a background of mimosa and heather-laden mountains, this tiny resort between Aveiro and Viseu is a good place from which to view the surrounding country. About 3km (1 3/4 miles) north of town, at the end of a dirt road, is a watchtower that affords a panoramic view of the Serra do Caramulo.
