    Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, is a great place for holidaymakers to look for relaxation and adventure. The weather is ideal for sunbathing and all sorts of outdoor activity while its streets are lined with monuments that date back to the Roman era among other important historical sites. Tourists will find that there are lively shopping centres with the latest in fashion as well as trendy cafes. And as they enjoy the delights of Lisbon, holidaymakers will have the joy of staying in holiday rentals in Santa Cruz, right next to the Atlantic Ocean. This means easy access to stretches of golden sands and the unlimited ocean breeze. Being part of the Torres Vedras municipality itself boasts a rich history, history buffs won’t have to go far to find something interesting. The holiday apartments in Santa Cruz command incredible views overlooking swaths of golf courses and the Atlantic.

    Things to do

    -Monuments: Even without leaving the Torres Vedras area, residents of Santa Cruz holiday homes will be able to view such astonishing constructions as the Moorish Castle. There are also other military installations, built during the locale’s earlier years which have now fallen into disuse. Santa Cruz itself has its fair share of ancient marvels including an old water mill and churches such as the Santa Helena chapel.

    -Museums: To add to the monuments, visitors can make a point of stopping by the Municipal Museum Leonel Trindade. This is where artefacts detailing the history of mankind from prehistoric times to when the Romans occupied this locale. There are also dinosaur fossils from the Upper Jurassic period and plenty of info about the different dinosaur species that existed. The name of the museum comes from a renowned native archaeologist and museum director.

    -Beaches: Visitors lucky enough to secure holiday villas in Santa Cruz will find that they are close to the Atlantic Ocean coastline. Here they’ll be able to recline and gaze into the endless blue of the ocean while receiving that long-awaited sun tan. The coastline is interspersed with lofty cliffs from which visitors can enjoy sublime panoramas.

    -Jose Alvalade Stadium: Football fans will jump at the opportunity while in the Portuguese capital to pay homage to the stadium where Cristiano Ronaldo’s footballing journey began. Holidaymakers in Santa Cruz holiday homes will only have to travel about 27 miles to get there. They can take time to peruse the club’s history or wander through the complex which also contains a movie theatre, health club and a sports pavilion.

    -Vasco da Gama Bridge: This wonder is also about an hour’s drive from Torres Vedras but is well worth the effort to visit. At 17km, the Vasco da Gama Bridge is the longest in Europe and among the ten longest in the world. It spans the Tagus River, not far from Lisbon.
