Welcome to your upland getaway, the one that opens up new activities and appetites.
Every Octant is a tribute to its location. They are places where you will find care and attention, peace and freedom, with no time constraints. As well as rare emotion, in-depth knowledge, and unique encounters and experiences that you will remember forever.
Here, in the very heart of town’s historical centre, you will find the Palace of Lousã, which represents the evolution in style and architecture that took place between the 18th and 19th centuries. An emblazoned 18th-century building that once served as the palace of the Viscountess of Espinhal, and which is classified as historical heritage of public interest, having left its mark on several generations of inhabitants due to the impact of the Viscountess’s generosity.
But from this historical conservation, new memories and contemporary confluences are created, around a leafy mountain range. Anyone who arrives here through sports, photography, or a love of nature, can read the contours of this mountain well; from here you can see the castle and schist villages, rivers and waterfalls, wild boar and deer. The craggy uplands become the ideal place to do adventure sports, since nature will always be challenging you to surpass yourself. So it will hardly come as a surprise that these landscapes whet your appetite. At À TERRA, you can discover traditional and comforting dishes of game, chestnutchestnuts and pumpkin. But if you still want more, Lousã is generous and will have something delicious that you can savour at your leisure.
This is what it means to be free. It is having the time for what matters, turning it into good memories, and returning to them over and over again.
Discover, too, the À TERRA Restaurant, outings to see the schist villages, the river beaches, and the craft workshops we have chosen for you..
