Quinta Relva do Trigo, a peaceful little turism guesthouse in the heart of Portugal’s rural countryside. Between Lisbon and Porto close by the old university town of Coimbra the Quinta is situated at Ponte das Três Entradas, where the rivers Alvôco and Alva meet.
With those rivers meandering through the countryside and the nature park the Serra da Estrela nearby, the Quinta is a beautiful place to start your nature hiking and biking. You can even enjoy snow in the wintertime and that’s quite unique in Portugal.
But of course you can also relax and enjoy a good book at the river Alvôco which is said to be the cleanest river in Portugal and runs along the Quinta.
Anyway you can expect a warm welcome,
Saturday the 5th and sunday the 6th of March Oliveira do Hospital is organizing the 25th ´Festa do Queijo´. During this festival the Serra da Estrela cheese is demonstrated along with other regional products as wine, liquor, jams etc..
Oh Ponte das Três Entradas
Each arm a way out
To the Enchanting Grounds
Of the labyrinth of Life
How many times You have three branches
On the road to the Future!
How many times we stand
Without knowing which road to follow!
Dr. Vasco de Campos, Búzio 1974
Amanhã há-de raiar a liberdade,
Esperamos nós cada dia que passa,
P’ra não volvermos a cair na obscuridade:
Volta – luz nossa, para sempre.
Jamais virá esse momento
Tal como nenhum anjo desce à terra,
Nem a lugares onde o sofrimento
Despe o azedume e enverga o desespero. More
