Driving through the industrial estate in nearby Abrantes, we had no idea we were so close to the grand old estate of Casa Anadia. Olive oil production here dates back to the 18th century and the estate itself goes back even further to the 14th century. The Casa only opened for tourism in Spring 2022 and it is a fantastic place to take a tour, to step back in time and understand how the rich and poor lived together on this mighty estate. The gardens are beautiful, the house is palatial, and the museum and chapel are very interesting and steeped in social history. At the end of the tour you can do an olive oil tasting and learn more about the varieties and their subtleties of flavour.
A tour and tasting costs 12.50 euros and must be booked in advance.
