Last but not least there is also Lisbon, an hour’s drive away from Santarém. A metropolis and yet so locally anchored, a truly remarkable city. Your culinary heart will beat faster when tasting the famous Pastel de Nata (delicious pastry), the Sopa de Marisco (fish chowder with an entire crab) and so much more. Make sure you visit the historical buildings, museums, churches and cathedrals. Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, for example, is a unique site. Close to Lisbon you can also find the mundain Cascais along the coast and also the breathtakingly beautiful Sintra.
