Go by train to try this year’s lamprey – starts February

CP – Comboios de Portugal is once again running its Lamprey Circuit outings between February and April with train journeys and restaurant bookings in some of the best-known restaurants for this dish in the Beira Baixa region.

Gourmets can use the Regional and Intercidades trains to get to Tancos, Barragem de Belver and Ródão, enjoy a lunch at the “Almourol”, “A Lena” or “Vale Mourão” restaurants and then get back home again by train.

We are offering groups for 10 or more people 40% off return Regional and Intercidades ticket for adults and 10% off for children and senior citizens.

The price of the meal varies depending on the dish and, in some cases, includes entertainment such as boat trips to visit Almourol castle or the Portas de Rodão national monument, a guided tour of Museu Lagar de Varas and traditional games.
