Tips, hints and links
Near the Cristo Rei Viewpoint, formerly known as Pico do Castelo, vestiges of pottery were found, attesting to human occupation in the Chalcolithic and Bronze and late Roman or Visigoth periods. It is located precisely at the confluence of the municipalities of Abrantes, Vila de Rei and Sardoal on the left bank of the Codes Stream, a tributary of the Zêzere. Here it is possible to enjoy the lush landscapes and natural heritage, highlighting some specimens of the Portuguese oak, maritime pine, eucalyptus, gorse and heather. It is the only place in the parish with access to the Castelo de Bode lagoon through the floating dock installed for holidaymakers. Throughout the parish, it is possible to taste the bread and chickpea soup, the boca do forno cakes, Santos cornbread and leavened bread. In handicrafts, of note are the rag dolls, regional dolls, rodilhas, mats nest-egg flowers.
