One can visit the Chapel of Our Christ of Help (Capela do Nosso Senhor da Ajuda), and a vast old and traditional pottery fabric, where very interesting crafts and goods are to be found. A little further on, in Tancos, one can take a fluvial trip on the Tagus River.
As for food and drink, this is the right place to taste good, homemade, tasteful traditions. The wines are fine and rich and you'll be surprised how affordable fine and tasty local cuisine can be.
