The Zezere lake (storage reservoir) is huge and has dozens of little beaches. There are lots of beautiful old villages like Dornes, with its 12th century tower and beautiful old church, and Constancia, where the river Zezere meets the river Tejo. Fatima is at 40km.

Tomar is a little, modern town where you can buy everything you like, and its market on fridaymorning is famous. It even has got a little museum and art gallery, beside some very good restaurants.
