Tapada Nacional de Mafra


The Tapada Nacional de Mafra was created during the reign of king João V, following the building of the Convent of Mafra, as a park for royal and court recreation.

Covering over eight hundred hectares, the park holds different species of deer, wild boar, foxes, birds of prey and many others coexisting in an unusually rich and diversified natural habitat. A favourite of the Portuguese monarchy for hunting and other leisure pursuits, the Tapada de Mafra took on a noble connotation that has done much to aid its preservation and continuity.

Its natural heritage ensures it is unquestionably an excellent location for environmental awareness and education programmes.

The Tapada is also open for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, archery and crossbow shooting activities. On weekends and public holidays, tours may also be made by tourist train, subject to prior booking.
