A Tourist Guide to World Heritage Sites I - In the heart of Portugal
Consult the leaflet concerning the 4 routes we’ve specially created to help you discover this region. Nestled in the southwest corner of Europe, we call this region “the heart of Portugal”.
Many of the key events surrounding the birth of Portugal - the country with the oldest borders in Europe – are associated to this zone. The region has a rich history and brims with a plethora of myths and legends. Its exceptional importance - the theme underlying these routes - is demonstrated by the fact that it houses three of Portugal’s most important UNESCO World Heritage monuments, in an area spanning little over 90km2.
