Bussaco
Alegre Hotel Bussaco

100 meters from the Hotel, stays the Bussaco National Park, a paradise on earth, full of exotic trees brought from overseas by the Portuguese sailors, cold springs of crystalline water and dramatic view points over the sea line.

It was a closed park until the early XIX Century, used for meditation by monks of a Spanish religious order (Carmelites) that build its monastery and a collection of small chapels with special permission of Felipe III of Spain (Felipe II of Portugal). Inside, you will find the last Palace that the Portuguese Monarchy decided to build - no doubt, a pearl of architecture and a delight for the eyes.

In early XIX century, Bussaco was the stage for one of the most important battles of the Peninsular War, opposing the duke of Wellington against Massena and marking the beginning of the end of the French and Napoleon invasions.
