The archaeological evidence reveals that Conimbriga was inhabited, at least, between the century. IX BC and Sécs. VII-III, of our era. When the Romans arrived, in the second half of the century. I BC, Conimbriga was a thriving town. Thanks to the peace established in Lusitania, a rapid romanization of the indigenous population took place and Conimbriga became a prosperity. Conimbriga currently corresponds to an area consecrated as a national monument, defined by decree in 1910.

Serra do Buçaco (or Bussaco; in the past it was also called Serra de Alcoba) is an elevation of mainland Portugal, with 549 meters of altitude. It covers the municipalities of Mealhada, Mortágua and Penacova. The forest that still exists today in the Serra do Buçaco was planted by the Order of the Discalced Carmelites in the first quarter of the 17th century; there, the Carmelites also built the Convent of Santa Cruz do Buçaco, designed to house this monastic order, which existed between 1628 and 1834, the date of the extinction of religious orders in Portugal. Presently, in its place there is the Hotel Palace Buçaco.
