"The spa town of Luso is one of the greatest places that nature endowed our country." In this village you can find the Mata do Bussaco, an ancient arboretum in the Central region of Portugal that is considered one of the best dendrological collections in Europe. The forest covers about 105 hectares and contains more than 250 trees and shrub species that grow in the forest, including exotic species introduced by Portuguese sailors. In 2004 Portugal proposed the Mata do Bussaco for UNESCO's provisional list of World Heritage Sites.
The Gran Hotel Termas de Luso was designed by Cassiano Branco Viriato, who is considered by many as the most inventive character of modernity, but also versatile of modern language and traditional style.
