The “Buddha Eden Garden” – a place with about 35 acres, idealized and conceived by José Berardo, that in 2001, gave life to one of his dreams: the construction of an extensive oriental garden, paying homage to the colossal Budas sculpted in the Bamyan valley rocks, at the centre of Afghanistan, and that were cultural and spiritual references for centuries.
In the wine tourism area, you can visit the Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal, founded in the 20's, that holds 3 farms in the demarcated region of Óbidos: Quinta do Sanguinhal, Quinta das Cerejeiras and Quinta de S. Francisco. The visits to Quinta do Sanguinhal take its visitors to stimulate their spirit of discovery and experience.

The history of the city of Alcobaça and its contemporary life are well connected with the presence of the Order of Cister that for almost 700 years built, by donation of king Afonso Henriques, in the confluence of the Alcoa and Baça rivers, one of the biggest Cistercians monasteries of the world.
Going for more 20 Km, 24 minutes, you can also visit the Monastery of Aljubarrota, repository of the vast presence for centuries of the Cister monks, where rest the tombs of D. Pedro and D. Inês de Castro, murdered by a forbidden love.
