1. Visit the Museum of Olives

The Museum of Olives was built around a family’s dream to preserve and showcase the history of olive oil. It features a collection of tools used to grow, harvest, and process olives for the production of oil, including old crushers and presses.

The museum is an interesting and informative place to visit, especially for those who love cooking with olive oil. You can taste and buy different types of olive oils at the end of your tour.

The museum is open to visitors all year round and is located in the heart of the village. It’s a wonderful place to explore with friends or family. You can also visit it as part of a larger day trip or longer stay in Bobadela. For example, you could combine it with a visit to the church or river beach. Alternatively, you could take part in one of the many full or multi-day tours that include a visit to the Museum of Olives.

2. Take a Tour of the Church

Bobadela is a small town, so there are not many things to do and attractions to visit. However, it is a good place to stop over and take a break before heading to the neighboring cities.

The church in Bobadela is a wonderful sight to see. It is a gorgeous white and yellow building with some baroque elements in it. The interior is also beautiful with elaborate wood carvings. There are even gilded details in some parts of the building.

You can also find the tomb of Vasco da Gama in this church. He was one of the most famous European explorers in history. His tomb is adorned with lovely vines that look like ship ropes – a fitting motif for someone who spent his life exploring the world. There is also a monument outside of the church for those who were murdered during the Lisbon massacre in 1506. It is a haunting place to visit, and it is worth the trip.

3. Visit the Museum of History

This is a museum about Portuguese history. It includes exhibits about the country’s past and its relationship with other countries in Europe and beyond. It also features a collection of azulejo tiles.

It was a really great way to get a good understanding of the Portuguese history and it’s a must-see for everyone who goes to Lisbon. The museum was well organised with many different language options available for the audio guide, as well as a very interesting “earthquake room” with a cinematic film.

There were also some very chilling exhibits about the torture and censorship that took place during the Estado Novo dictatorship. I applaud this museum for serving a useful purpose of combating authoritarianism and making sure Portugal’s dark period is never forgotten or discarded as a lesser evil. However, I did find some of the museum’s presentation confusing at times. Some pieces did not have any labels and the lighting was dim.

4. Take a Tour of the Castle

This hilltop castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most impressive castles in the country. It’s also a short distance from Pena Palace so it’s worth coinciding your visit with either or both.

This medieval castle is set within an equally gorgeous medieval Parish and although you might struggle to find much else to do in the area, it’s a lovely place to spend a day (or more). It’s also a great spot for photo opportunities!
