The Center of Portugal
We embraced our peace setting this morning as we drive to Zaboeira. From our launch point on the local river beach, we can clearly see the Ferreira do Zêzere bridge in the distance. We enter the lake and swam south to contemplate the beauty of the bridge that connects the district of Santarém and Castelo Branco.
In the afternoon, we undertake a shorter swim from Praia Fluvial de Fontes, a place where we can contemplate the north side of Ilha do Lombo, explored on the day before. But first, we will visit one of the main belvederes in this área, the Penedo Furado, from where you can admire a fine panoramic view of the riverside and dive into the waterfalls and charming natural pools.
