East along the Rio Tejo

Share

Around 20km south of Tomar, the Rio Tejo swings east, past the remarkable castle at Almourol, to meet the Rio Zêzere at Constância, one of the most attractive towns on the Tejo. There’s another historic castle at Abrantes, 12km further east, and an even more extraordinary one at Belver, east of Abrantes, on the north bank of the Tejo. The whole route is an enjoyable approach to the towns of the northern Alentejo or the Beira Baixa, and it’s covered by train (the Lisbon–Covilhã service), but drivers are going to have the best of it since you’re unlikely to want to stop anywhere for long.
