Impression of sights and activities in the area

Below an impression of the various sights that Central Portugal, region of Arganil has to offer.


Traveling around Portugal and / or a city trip to Coimbra, Lisbon or Porto?


Many of our guests combine a stay at Casa Traca with a visit to one of these three cities. Coimbra is easy to do as a day trip from Casa Traca where you have enough time to view this beautiful place at your leisure and to eat well in one of the many restaurants.

Lisbon and Porto are a bit further away but are ideal to combine when you arrive in Portugal or just before you leave Portugal. We can advise you on accommodation in one of the two cities.
If you are in Porto or Lisbon you can explore the city extensively on your own, but a guide can tell you so much more. We have entered into a partnership with Bajabikes for this. This organization organizes various cycling and walking tours in both cities and, if desired, even makes a trip to Sintra from Lisbon. We can book a tour for you, but you can also use our cooperation agreements via the links below.

For Porto: tours in Porto

For Lisbon: Tours in Lisbon

Tours – travel around

During these round trips you will stay in different accommodations from which you can make day trips to nearby attractions. You fly to Lisbon, faro or Porto where a car is waiting for you and you fly home via the other airport. You must book your flight and car hire yourself. We can advise you on this. We would like to refer you to the website of Rondreizen Portugal. See for more information rondreizen in the right side of the page
