Level 21     3 Trophy    Viaggia: Friends
Overall rating 8
Overall Guide : You should definitely not miss Quinta da Regaleira and the park, the well at the beginning and the galleries that emerge under waterfalls and ponds, the Palacio Nacional de Pena, but the most amazing thing is Cabo da Roca and... more all the nature there...it's priceless and fascinating!

Overall rating 7
Overall Guide : The Castelo dos mouros looks like the poorer brother of the two most famous buildings, but it has a mysterious charm and a superb view, that will blow you away, 360° from the top of the ramparts on a windy... more day. Do not miss it!
