Santarém District

Welcome to Santarém District

Santarém: Santarém is the lively capital of the Lezíria do Tejo sub-region (Lisboa e Vale do Tejo region). Unlike the Alentejo, this district is formed by vast, green plains that stretch to the horizon, often flooded by the river Tagus. While horse and bull breeding are amongst some of the region’s most proud traditions, Santarém is particularly famous for its bullfights and annual National Agricultural Fair. The capital city of Santarém is home to a collection of interesting churches and to the popular Jardim das Portas do Sol – a garden encircled by the city’s medieval walls, affording magnificent views of the district’s plains and river. The quiet town of Golegã hosts a colourful annual horse fair, attracting large crowds of horse-lovers every November.
