Did you know there’s a little Portugal tucked way in Coimbra where everything is shrunk to a miniature size?

This is Portugal dos Pequenitos, which literally translates to Portugal of the Little Ones.

It’s a park built in the 40s that lets you explore tiny replicas of traditional Portuguese homes from the sunny Algarve to the historic North.

But it’s not just houses. There are pint-sized versions of Portugal’s most iconic monuments and buildings. Just imagine stepping into a mini Lisbon…

And the adventure doesn’t stop in mainland. You can check out the mini wonders of Madeira and Azores and embark on a tour around the Portuguese speaking world from Angola to Brazil, Cape Verde and beyond!

This is perfect for families and the young at heart. Portugal dos Pequenitos is a journey through Portugal’s rich culture and heritage all in miniature!

Like the founder said: “everything is tiny for us but big for the children, and everything is real!”

So whether you’re big or small, make sure you add this to your trip to Portugal!

Douro Historical Train 🚂

Running from June to October, the historical train takes you back in time. You have a chance to ride coaches that date back to 1908! 😱 Hello Sheldon Cooper!!

As soon as the next edition opens, you can buy your tickets at the @cp_comboiosdeportugal but keep in mind, they sell out super fast! We recommend going in June or October, because the Douro Valley can be quite hot in the summer months.

🎟️ we’ll let you know once the tickets for this year go on sale!

Óbidos is a charming medieval gem surrounded by ancient walls. Known for its narrow cobblestone streets, colorful houses, and vibrant flowers, Óbidos offers a delightful journey back in time.

More than a touristic destination, Óbidos has been the meeting point for many artists throughout time, and to this day you can find little shops and workshops selling local handicrafts & art pieces.

Best time to visit: all year round, but Óbidos is even prettier on each of these festivities:
- Chocolate Fair 🍫 March
- Easter 🐣 Holy Week
- Óbidos Medieval Market 🏰 July
- Folio Festival 📚 October
- Óbidos Christmas Market 🎄 December
