Condeixa-a-Nova

Located in the central region, the sub-region of the lower Mondego, Condeixa-a-Nova makes borders with the following municipalities: Coimbra, Penela, Soure, Miranda do Corvo and Montemor-o-Velho. It is a county that perfectly combines the city atmosphere with the mountainous landscape. The mild , typically Mediterranean, climate along with the profusion of running water, made Condeixa become a municipality of rare natural beauty. Examples of this beauty are Gruta da Lapinha, Canhão do Rio dos Mouros, Buracas do Casmilo and Paul de Arzila nature reserve. We can find viewpoints at Janeanes and Círculo mountains with stunning panoramic views over the entire county. One of the must-see places in the municipality is Conímbriga, one of the most visited points in the country. This ancient Roman city, built over an iron age settlement, highlights an about 1500 meters long walled structure. These ruins are classified as a National Monument. Be sure to also visit the remainder built heritage, specially its many palaces. The regional gastronomy is rich and varied, but the most popular dishes are the wood-oven baked lamb served with roasted potatoes and cooked turnip greens, and the goat or lamb chanfana (kind of stew made with red wine), served with boiled potatoes. Try also the famous Rabaçal cheese and the escarpiada (kind of sweets with cane sugar, olive oil and cinnamon filling).
