Miranda do Corvo – the market town of Miranda do Corvo has a remote history, although its ancient castle, conquered by the Moors in 1116, has almost completely disappeared and only the bell tower and cistern still remain. The town has a beautiful church situated on a hill overlooking the area. A large "Rio de Janeiro"-type statue of Jesus also looks out over the town. The town has all amenities including a weekly market selling fresh local produce on Wednesdays.
Walking distance from the apartment is the equestrian centre where organised rides through the Mountain Range of the Serra da Lousã can be arranged. The centre also has a Biological Park, bringing together a wide range of animals representative of the Portuguese fauna. The goal is to raise awareness of wildlife in Portugal and not to create a traditional zoo but a place that is able to show in close to the natural environment, some species that inhabit the Portuguese territory. Featuring among the various animals are deer, roe deer, lynx, bear, mouflon sheep, and more. The Park also has an open air swimming pool and a restaurant specialising in the regional-famous dish "chanfana" (a sort of goat stew), which is thought to have been created at the monastery of Semide. . Local handicrafts include works in lace, a tradition also born at the monastery, and the "Almalaguês weaving", woven and embroidered cotton fabric which is used to make tapestries and bedspreads.
