What to see, do in Vidais

With about 1200 inhabitants, this parish in the municipality of Caldas da Rainha borders on that of Rio Maior. Here you can visit and see the Arch of Memory and the chapels of Mosteiros, Rabaceira and Castros.

We also highlight the Christmas project in which it is possible to observe several cribs with figures on a human scale. If you like to eat, know that gastronomy is also appreciated on these sides:

  • Fricassee
  • Mixed with sardines
  • Codfish
  • Ferradura  (dry cake)
  • Pão de Ló (Sponge cake)

Arco da Memória

The Arch of Memory was erected by the Cistercian monks, Alcobaça in honor of Afonso Henriques, the first Portuguese king.

Currently the arch that we can see and visit is just a replica of the original and is located in a place with the same name as the monument.


Nativity scenes on a human scale is a project that stands out in the locality of Vidais, and every year during the Christmas season it is decorated with some facilities associated with this season.
