The pandemic has changed us in many ways. It has caused a true revolution in the way we perceive life and the planet. But also, in the way we see ourselves. The call of Nature was utterly heard and post-pandemic travellers now long for peaceful destinations, embraced by green landscapes and the inspiring sound of silence. This week we give our readers good reasons to choose Center of Portugal as a soul-soothing destination. Because mental health matters.

According to the Wellness Travel Consumer Survey, released by the Wellness Tourism Association, in 2020 travellers have elected “Peace & Quiet” as the main travel motivation. Especially those persons who live in noisy and highly populated cities. The return to nature is a global trend. Consumers are now more aware of their ecological footprint and seek for more sustainable destinations and wellness retreats. In Center of Portugal we have all that it takes to fit the demands of highly conscious travellers. Connecting with nature is the key. And finding ourselves too.
