Portugal’s western region is one of the tourist regions with the greatest potential and the choice between the sea and the hills offers a range of options. Its location near the Serra de Montejunto makes Quinta do Gradil a unique place, where customers can come, relax and taste some of the region’s best wines. We try to strengthen this symbiosis, specifically with the environment that surrounds us and the different activities offered by the region. Visits to heritage sites and for getting to know the wine-growing process, starting at the vineyards, moving on to the cellar and ending at the tasting room and a wine store, horse rides, harvest events, birdwatching, an aqueduct, a chapel and a mill are other attractions that form part of wine tourism at Quinta do Gradil.

Join us for a visit of the Quinta dos Loridos, where the impressive Buddha Eden - the largest oriental garden in Europe, can be found. The oriental garden with around 35 hectares of land was created as a reaction to the destruction of the Buddhas of Banyan, in which one of the greatest acts of cultural barbarity took place, erasing masterpieces of late-period Gandhara art. From Buddhas, pagodas, terracotta statues and the various carefully-placed sculptures which can be found throughout the gardens, it is estimated that some six thousand tons of marble and granite were used to create this monumental work of art. The central staircase is the focal point of the garden, where the golden Buddhas offer you a calm welcome.
