This pretty little town, situated only a few kilometers north of the university city of Coimbra, produces Portugal’s premier mineral water, Aqua de Luso. The spring water, high in minerals, flows freely from the town’s fountains, and the bottling plant dispatches thousands of bottles a day to meet the needs of the country’s supermarkets and restaurants.
Luso has also been a major spa town in Portugal since the 18th century and is much used by those suffering from arterial problems. Consequently the town has an abundance of excellent hotels. This makes it a good choice for exploring this part of central Portugal.
Close to Luso is the Palace of Buçaco, a magnificent example of neo- manueline Portuguese architecture. Although it enjoys the title of ‘palace’ it was actually built as a hunting lodge in the late 19th century for the last king of Portugal. Unfortunately, as the king was murdered in 1908, its days as a hunting pavilion were rather short. This extravagant edifice has been a hotel for many years, and is currently undergoing renovations.
The gardens and the surrounding Buçaco Forest are a delight and there is an enjoyable walk through the trees, some of which date back to the 17th century, to the Cruz Alta sanctuary, which has splendid views over Luso.
Activities in the Beira Litoral:
There are several good golf courses around Viseu, the Montabelo Golf being one of the closest. Situated between the Serra de Estrela and the Serra do Caramulo mountains, the course has stunning views as well as immaculate greens.
The Serra de Estrela is a wonderful natural area for all types of sport, and in winter the mountains provide excellent skiing.
Nearby cities to visit
Porto is considered the capital of the north and is the second largest city in Portugal. The city itself is built on the steep northern bank of the River Douro and radiates out to the Atlantic to the west and the ports of Matosinhos and Leça in the north. For the visitor, most points of interest are shoe-horned into a fairly small area between the riverside Ribeira district and the central Avenida dos Aliados.
It is within this area that you will find the maze of medieval alleys, old world shops, cobbled streets and baroque monuments that define this city.
Coimbra In terms of historic significance and romantic beauty, Coimbra is second only to Lisbon and Porto. Its ancient buildings cling to the side of the hill that rises above the curves of the river Mondego, the ornate buildings of the famous University of Coimbra are its crowning glory.
Viseu is set on a plateau high in the hills of Beira Alta, this regional capital retains a medieval feel to what was once a walled centre and has been an important crossroads since Roman times. In fact, the Romans kept a large garrison of soldiers here, the most important yet to be uncovered by archaeologists in Portugal and the buildings of which apparently covered around 40 square hectares.
