Bussaco

Bussaco is discover the beauty of a real illustrated postcard. Let yourself be dazzled by the stunning National Forest of Bussaco, a protected area with extreme importance both botanic and natural. Planted and walled by the Order of the Discalced Carmelites in the XVII century, worth a walk through its numerous fountains, chapels, hermitages and viewpoints, highlighting its Via Sacra and the Convent of Santa Cruz.
