Places to visit on holiday to Santiago do Cacem, Portugal

While this city is packed with attractions, a visit here can’t be complete without a trip to the majestic Castelo de Santiago do Cacem which sits on a hill. This magnificent structure was initially built by Arabs but later reconstructed in the 12th century by Christians. Its cubic turret particularly stand out. Next to it is the 13th century parish church that owes its origin to the Knights of the Order of Santiago. Another castle, Castelo Velho, is found on the east of Santiago do Cacem and dates back to the late Neolithic times. While still on this historic discovery trail, visitors will want to also see the Roman ruins of Mirobriga. Looking at the walls and pillars that still stand amid patches of grass, it’s hard to believe that they date back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. Nature lovers are advised to make their way to Badoca Park where they will see plenty of wild animals. All they need to do is take a guided jeep ride through the park to see buffaloes, ostriches, llamas, tigers, giraffes and even kangaroos, among other species ambling about and feeding in habitats that are as close to their real homes as can be. Those with kids will be delighted to note that the park has a playground built specifically for them.

Wonderful place!

5 of 5
We had a very nice time in this lovely little cottage in quiet place. It was very clean and it has everything you need. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The property was beautiful and the pool area was wonderful. In front of the house we found a cozy nice place in the shadow of some oleander trees. The host stayed in contact with us and helped with all questions. We had a wonderful holiday. Thanks a lot.
