Bombarral is not a top destination, but it is located close to Lisbon, in a touristy route that leads to Obidos, Alcobaça, Nazaré and the other main attractions int the centre of Portugal.
Thus, it may be an option to a brief stop, and a look "of the beaten path". My Bombarral page may help.
With so many wonders in Leiria district, who is the guy, crazy enough to recommend... Turquel?
Me! And for a single reason - it's the best place to see... us.
Home town is home town, and Turquel, without special attractions it's close to everything and proud of its hospitality.
Really, it's not a bad idea!
A few kilometers from Turquel, my home town, Santa Catarina is a nice small town belonging to Caldas da Rainha, that, recently has been embellishing its common spaces. Small and simple, it is a progressive place that deserves that classification as "Vila"
