Tapada Nacional de Mafra Reviews
Great for hiking Sep 12, 2010
Tapada Nacional de Mafra, which is located a few kilometers from the palace, was the king’s hunting ground . It is still fenced off by its original wall, which has a length of around 21 kilometers. Today the park is a protected area with many wild deer, boar, foxes and badgers.
There are several longer and shorter hiking trails, the longest trail is 7 kilometer long. The first part involves some climbing, but you have a good chance you will run into wild deer and maybe a wild boar a two.
If you want to go hiking, keep a few things in mind:
- There is no entrance to the park between 11.30 and 14.30.
- In the summer: bring plenty of water to drink, protection against the sun and some sort of insect repellant.
- Do not come to close to the wild boar, especially if it is a mother with her children.
