The Grande Lago offers some of the cleanest crystal clear cruising waters in Europe. This unique location allows you to cruise all year round with plenty of warm weather and amazing scenery. Moor up on one of the remote islets for the night for a family 'Robinson Crusoe' experience. Then visit the recently built village of Luz - an exact relica of the old Luz that was swallowed up by the Grande Lago (don't miss the fascinating musem). Next explore Mourao with its castle and fortifications dating back to the 13th Century, with its narrow historic streets and splendid bullring.
