The historic center of Santarém is easily visited by foot. The probably best solution is to park at the “Jardim das Portas do Sol” and go from there.
The view from this park is stunning : the Tagus is at your feet and as far as you can see it, heading towards Lisbon.
During Autumn, you’ll appreciate the plane trees leaves falling.
The old town of Santarém
Leaving the park, you are immediately submerged by the atmosphere of the old town. Between buildings that fall in ruins and those that have been renovated, all have a history and beauty of their own.
If you look up a little, you will discover real architectural treasures.
