When To Go:
QUINTA DA DOURADA
Located in the heart of São Mamede Natural Park, Quinta da Dourada is a privileged place for nature lovers. With the nearest road at about 1 km away, Nuno Malato Correia is glad to share with you a place “where silence makes time stop”. In the soft lulling of the end of the afternoon breeze, besides the cheerful chant of the birds and the waving of the lime-tree leaves, a tree with more than 300 years old, you won’t hear anything else. If you want to understand the emotion Nuno feels for this special place, ask him the reason for the oxblood colour which gives soul to Dourada. Just try not to mention football, because he is completely “fanatical” about SL Benfica and the conversation may end up badly.
