In Pedrógão Pequeno

In fact, we didn’t go to Pedrógão Pequeno, we just stayed overnight in a local hotel, and spent the night and the next day in lively games around the Cabril dam.

Curious how, without visiting a place, you can make good memories of it!

I recommend Montanha

Pedrógão Pequeno - 1 funny day

Reasonable service, cheap hotel with not many alternatives around. The food was not particularly convincing, but we were a large team, and “mass service” always risks to loose quality. 

Cabril dam

For a trip to the “deep Portugal” it may be an option. When I was there it was called “Varandas do Zêzere”. I read that it was closed and reopened under new name and management. I know nothing about the new reality, but the location is the same and the references very positive.

Rafting in Cabril

Rafting in Cabril

We spent a good day in team works in the dam of Cabril, building rafts and rowing in the calm waters. 

​Accessible from both Pedrógão (this time we stayed in Pedrógão Pequeno, in Castelo Branco district, but, at a very short distance, in the opposite side of the dam, we have also Pedrógão Grande, in Leiria district) in each side, I don’t know any local structure providing support to this kind of games.
