A 20 minute train ride, across the Tagus river will give you access to the cosmopolitan lifestyle of a modern European city with all its social and cultural attractions. But if you prefer a boat ride then in 30 minutes and just a few minutes away, you can walk to the downtown area where many shops and cafés will be at your disposal.
