Just 40 minutes by train from Lisbon, Santarem sits inland, east of Peniche. Santarem is part of the microclimate that surrounds this region. The mountainous region traps clouds and moisture as land temperatures rise. The town is close to Lisbon, but this hasn’t resulted in many tourists visiting the town.
Santarem is a quiet place, perfect for wiling away the days tending to your garden. If you’re comfortable with the remoteness of Santarem, you’ll still find yourself located within striking distance of many attractions this region has to offer. For those looking to network with fellow digital nomads, you’ll struggle to find co-working spaces here.
