Fun Car Rent is the perfect way to explore the landscapes of the Serra de São Mamede National Park, Alto Altentejo and Tagus valley, and to visit beautiful castle-villages like Castelo de Vide, Marvão, Elvas, Portalegre, Alburquerque, and Monsanto. Just across the border in Spain, the spectacular 16th century conquistador towns of Cáceres, Trujillo and Plasencia are a short day-trip away. And some of the best Roman monuments in the world – the theatre and amphitheatre in Mérida, the majestic Roman bridge at Alcántara, the temple and walls of Évora – are all easily driveable.
Best of all are the opportunities to enjoy the landscapes. We’ll tell you about beauty-spots that most tourists never see: out-of-the-way menhirs and dolmens, the amazing lost castle of Azagala, the views from King Wamba’s tower over the Tagus gorge (Portugal’s Lorelei), vulture colonies on difficult-to-find cliff tops.
In our honest opinion, this is one of the best regions for walks, picnics – and driving! – in Western Europe.
