Fonte Fria
É a fonte mais famosa do Buçaco e também a mais grandiosa. O seu aspecto actual é resultante de duas intervenções no Século XIX.
Neste local podemos desfrutar de agradáveis sombras e de uma água pura e fresca.

The forest created by the order of Carmelite monks who settled here in 1628 has been maintained throught the ages. Such was the beauty ofthe preserve that a papal bull, issued in 1643, threatened excommunication to anyone who destroyed one of its trees. Though the monastery was abolished in 1834, the forest survived. Filled with natural spring waters, the earth bubbles with manny cool fountains, the best known of which is Fonte Fria (cold fountain).
