Lousã is a small town in central Portugal, with a natural beauty, but out of the main tourist circuits, being a good destination to the seekers of nature.
his small castle, with lots of history since the 11th century, was ruined by a legend that said there were treasures hidden on it.
Declared a national monument in 1910, it as been object of several recuperation, becoming, today, an interesting visit, in forested and cool hills.
Located close to the castle, this small chapel is the result of a recuperation, done in the 19th century, of a very old ruin.
Almost Natural Pools
A simple and smart device in a river by the castle was used to make an artificial pool, in a natural environment, with a natural look.
We found it open and empty, but got an idea how pleasant it may become in the hot summer days.
Alameda Carlos Reis
Inside town, we saw a park with some facilities and a small luna park, but our goal was the castle and didn’t stop.
