Feeling Bussaco

Feeling 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. At the heart of this unique landscape in Europe, travel to the past through a royal palace of “neomanuelino” style with a large symbolism dedicated to the Portuguese Discoveries. It is a tour with the ambience of a true fairy tale. You will also have the opportunity to taste the water from Luso directly from its fountain and take a walk in this small town, known for the purity of its waters. You can only completely feel this tour when you let yourself surrender to the flavors of food and wine from Bairrada region, ending this unique experience in a union between art, wine and passion at Aliança Underground Museum.
