Wine growing culture has deeply influenced the habits and landscapes of the western region, enjoying a long tradition in this region and playing a major role in these “vineyard and sea lands”. In terms of wine production, it is worth highlighting the Estremadura Regional Wine with geographical indication, as well as the wines with designation of origin (Arruda, Alenquer, Óbidos and Torres Vedras), and Lourinhã spirit also with protected designation of origin. The West Vine and Wine Route invites you to discover the regional diversified landscape and heritage, as well as its rich gastronomy through three different itineraries: Quintas de Alenquer, Óbidos and Linhas de Torres. The itinerary “Quintas de Alenquer” leads the visitor to the discovery of the cosy “crib town” and its wine growing properties along the typical western rural villages, manor houses, churches and considerably valuable convents. In this itinerary, you will also find the Protected Landscape of Montejunto Mountain with its Royal Ice factory and the Environmental Interpretation Centre. The “Óbidos” itinerary includes not only this emblematic Medieval town, a dowry of Portuguese queens, but also other icons of the western region such as the “quintas” in Bombarral, Óbidos lagoon, the thermal city of Caldas da Rainha, Rio Maior and its salt ponds, and Natural Park of Aire and Candeeiros Mountains. The deeply historical trail “Linhas de Torres” evokes the memory of the Duke of Wellington and this outstanding exemplar of military architecture. This itinerary also covers the area of Arruda dos Vinhos, Sobral de Monte Agraço, Runa, Turcifal, the city of Torres Vedras, where you will find São Vicente Fort and the municipal museum with a Napoleonic Invasions’ Centre. Santa Cruz beach, Copper Age fort hill in Zambujal and Lourinhã are also included. Lourinhã museum presents an important dinosaur collection.
