Lousada Vacation Packages
To the southwest of Lousada, 20 miles away, sits Porto.
You really ought to spend a bit of time in Portela. It's only 15 miles to the northwest of Lousada. Santa Barbara Garden and Archbishop's Palace are two of the top options. If you have some spare time, stop at Braga Cathedral.
Let the sun light up your face and the waves lap at your feet. We suggest starting at Granja Beach, 25 miles to the southwest, or Redonda Beach, 25 miles to the west.
To reconnect with the sights and sounds of Mother Nature, round up the family and head to Celorico De Basto Tourism Center, located 16 miles from Lousada. Another option is Parque Natural do Alvao, 25 miles away.
The excitement around Estadio D. Alfonso Henriques on game day is something you should experience. To witness the Vitória S.C. do their thing, head 11 miles to the north of Lousada. Make sure you wear white and black, the colors of the hometown heroes.
Freamunde, 3 miles to the west, is a close by locality. Head there and see Quinta da Aveleda and Aveleda Vineyards. If you'd like to explore even more of the region, go to Torno and have a look at Pao de Lo de Margaride and Amarante Golf Course. They sit just 4 miles from Lousada.
Don't forget to visit Ataide. It's about 5 miles to the southeast of Lousada and it features some excellent attractions, including Ponte de Sao Goncalo, Igreja de Sao Goncalo and Penafiel Church. Mosteiro de São Gonçalo and Igreja de São Domingos are also great choices if you're after more things to do.
Trying out different cuisines is one of the best ways of getting to know the area you are in. So be sure to stop by some of the region's restaurants and cafés.
Make sure you sample some local meals, like rojões (braised pork chunks) and cozido à portuguesa (portuguese stew).
Finish with a bang by sampling some arroz doce (sweet rice), a mouthwatering dessert.
Relax and enjoy a Coral, a well-loved beer.
To end the perfect night out, have a few sips of aguardente bagaceira, a well-known spirit.
It's always a good idea to have a regional vino by your side when you dine out in one of the local restaurants. Bairrada and Soalheiro are just two of the popular varieties around here.
After you have spent your final euros and it's time to go home, don't forget to say a last "Até logo" to Lousada.
