In the 17th century, the Carmelite Barefoot monks settled in the Bussaco mountain range, built a convent and planted exotic plants on the hillside. in the 19th century the religious orders were extinguished, but the heritage remained, enriched at the end of that century by the magnificent palace that is now a hotel.
Highlights in Bussaco:
The park’s botanical complex is unique in Europe, the palace is precious, and close by are the Luso spas and the restaurants in Mealhada.
