Presentation of Pampilhosa da Serra

This is a town that belongs to Coimbra District (and traditional province of Beira Baixa), has a 395 km² area, 10 freguesias (communes) and about 5900 inhabitants.
Sérgio Horta, 29 Nov 1999

if you ever come to Portugal by train from Paris (or somewhere along the way) and have waited excruciating long for a ridiculously unnecessary railroad operation in a place called Pampilhosa, this is not the one (that one belongs to Mealhada municipality).
