  • This place was on our way to Lisbon, so we made a quick stop! The view is spectacular! 5 min stop, be aware of the cars passing around, no toilet facilities!  more »
  • The Castelo do Bode is an imposing dam with beautiful architecture that deserves to be visited and is from where a significant portion of the supply of the capital Lisboa comes out.
