    The little village of São Caetano is made up of about 45 small houses of which about 35 still belong to the estate.The river Tejo runs right by it so we will be able to swim in it and enjoy its vistas.Sao Caetano is inhabited by a number of local people that are happy to interact with volunteers.

    This area around Cardiga has lots to see and experience in terms of historical sites, nature, local food etc.The famous Convent of Christ in Tomar, is only half an hour away by car.The estate itself is full of history that the locals are thrilled to share with volunteers.
    We are near one of the main train stations in the country, Entroncamento, that will take you right downtown Lisbon in about one hour.
