The Costa de Prata/Silver Coast/Central Portugal region
The Silver Coast is an area extremely rich in History: in Tomar, 18 Km away, you have the Castle and the Convent of Christ, the heart of the Templar Knights; Fátima which is 40 Km far, is known all over the religious world; Pombal, Ourém, Leiria and Porto de Mós, all in a distance of not more than 50 Km, have their old castles very well preserved. In a distance of 80 Km you have several well known beaches, Peniche, S. Pedro de Moel, and the famous Berlenga Island, unique in Portugal for its natural and wild life. And also Nazaré and its Praia do Norte, where Garrett McNamara surfed the worldwide famous 30 meters wave! It is a region of warm temperatures which can be sometimes quite hot during the day, getting always cooler by night, but warm enough to allow you some dinners al fresco! A golf course, Golden Eagle, is in Rio Maior, 90 Km far.
During Summer, several representations usually about middle age events, take place in the Tomar Castle. Also in July, every 4 years we have the Tabuleiros festival , where usually 300 boys and women carry bread and flower baskets 2 meters high on their heads, dressed in extremely beautiful dresses. Near Ferreira do Zêzere, in a distance of 15 Km, you have the longest dam in Portugal, Castelo do Bode, where you can rent a boat, fish, practice water sports, among some beautiful river beaches. Also 25 Km away there is Castelo de Almourol, a beautiful templar castle on an island, in the middle of the Tagus river.
