Santo Onofre e Serra do Bouro

What to see and do in Santo Onofre and Serra do Bouro

Santo Onofre

Former urban parish of Caldas da Rainha with about 12,500 inhabitants. The name comes from a figure of Santo Onofre that is in Quinta dos Pinheiros.

The emergence of Santo Onofre is linked to Bairro das Águas Santas, a neighborhood where medicinal water springs were discovered in 1852. Later on, a thermal spa will have been built, which is now deactivated.

Its origin was made through humble people who built their houses in this area, giving rise to the Bairro da Ponte, Bairro das Morenas and Bairro dos Arneiros.

Here in this neighborhood with great worker influence we find some of the largest institutions in the city such as PIMPÕES or ARNEIRENSE.

Serra do Bouro
