Moderate castle - great country Aug 14, 2010
Let's admit it, this is not one of those wonderful castles that whip the mind back for centuries - anyway you can only see it from the outside. However, if you count in the train trip to get there from Coimbra's Parque station, which gets better and better as you go and the walk from Lousa A station, it fully deserves its overall rating.

Lousa is a small enough town and on emerging from the station it was not clear which way I should go. Some people look more likely than others to speak a foreign language. I saw a lady in a parked car who looked possible so I asked her.

'Oh God - is it still that obvious? I've lived here several years now?'

Howevr, she told me the way!

Odd encounter and scenic castle
In the afternoon I took a train from Coimbra's third station, Coimbra Parque, to the small town of Lousa. Amazingly there was one train per day shown as running between here and Coimbra A, which must…Lousa's first station, a bit out from the centre. There was no indication of how to reach the nearby castle
