Two days before I had been at Aldeia do Natal, Guarda, and it was a very pleasant experience and it was free. The Vila Natal is a paid venue, no free parking and "restaurants" available at the venue are very poor and low quality. I was expecting much more and was disappointed with the available attractions. Some where paid, and... More

Vila Natal is a perfect place for families with children, but not only. I went there with my friend and although we are students, we had fun like in a lunapark.

I think it is a little bit expensive when you see what the offer is. It is fun if you have children to go with, but nevertheless, other than the shows, all activities have extra payment. The food offer is not that good and it is much better to eat in the village. But it is a nice place do... More

I bought the tickets online and went there with my wife, my brother-in-law, his wife and their son. I was expecting a little more diversity. It was fun and there were plenty of shows. But comparing it to Santa Maria da Feira’s Christmas fair, it was a little disappointing. There were loads of people and not much place to sit.... More

The well preserved walls of this medieval city are one of its most remarkable and immediate visual attractions: they help make the experience of a walking visit memorable.
