Ferreira do Zêzere

Situated between a large area of forest and the River Zêzere, which is transformed here into the enormous blue lake of the lagoon of the Castelo de Bode dam, Ferreira do Zêzere is a peaceful town with some notable palacelike houses and the Igreja Matriz (Parish Church), the interior of which contains fine gilded woodcarving, paintings, sculptures and 18th century stalls.

In the environs the high point is of course the Castelo de Bode lagoon, where it is possible to practise a wide variety of water sports, just take a rest, or visit the picturesque villages surrounded by the waters, an example of which is Dornes, with its row of white houses and the pentagonal tower built by the Templars.

The gastronomic specialities are kid with greens and suckling pig prepared in the local style.
