THE 12 WONDERS OF PORTUGAL

This Tour wants to reveal the 12 wonders of Portugal, that is the sites classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.

All over the country, including the islands of Madeira and Azores,  we can find true pieces of Art, natural or man-made, that deserve our admiration. Come with us and discover what also belongs to you!

Guimarães, where  Portugal was born, will be the starting point and there  you will stay  for three  nights. It’s a medieval city,  a symbol to Portuguese people,  whose heritage was preserved  with balance and distinction. Its unique historic centre  re- ceived the classification of UNESCO in 2001. The first two days will be spent discover- ing Guimarães and its secrets.

On the third day, the destination will be Porto, 50 kms away from Guimarães. Porto is closely linked to the River Douro, which gave the city its development, its beauty, its cosmopolitan and commercial look and its famous wine – Port Wine. In 1996, the city centre of Porto was classified as World Heritage.

On the fourth day, you will approach the heart of the Douro Valley, which is not only a river, but also a living entity with its own  character. The vineyards of the Douro valley,  World  Heritage since  2001, represent the oldest  demarcated wine. You will have the opportunity to visit farms producers of wine, to have a trip by train  and by the typical Rabelo boat, enjoying the scenery.

In the morning of the fifth day, you will visit the Archaeological Park of the Côa Val- ley to admire the  carvings, classified in 1998. It’s a magnificent outdoor museum which reveals artistic works, surrounded by outstanding scenery.

On the sixth  day, leaving the Douro  region, the tour continues to the centre  of the country. The next stop will be in Coimbra, the capital of the Portuguese knowledge. This city has the third oldest university in Europe and a fantastic library.

In the morning of the seventh day, you will visit the Monastery of Batalha, near the place where  an important battle for the consolidation of Portugal as an independ- ent nation took place in 1385. It was classified in 1983.

In the afternoon, you will arrive at Tomar, where  it is the Convent of Christ,  World Heritage since 1983. It represents a mixture of different architectural styles, reflect- ing  seven  centuries of History. Then, you will  admire the  Monastery of Alcobaça, classified in 1989. In spite of being almost 900 years old, it keeps its divisions intact and all its splendour. You will end the day in Óbidos, a medieval city, perfectly pre- served, surrounded by walls and looking like an illustrated postcard.

On the eighth day, you will reach Lisbon, the capital, where  you will stay for three nights. The ninth day will  be spent  exploring the  city.  One  of the  stops  will  be at the Monastery of Jerónimos, World  Heritage since 1983, a precious jewel  from the kingdom of D. Manuel I. Another stop must be at the Tower of Belém, also classified in 1983.

On the tenth day you will visit Sintra, whose natural scenery was classified in 1995. In Sintra you  will  find  a refreshing and  romantic atmosphere, as well  as notable monuments.

On the eleventh day you will go to the fortified city of Elvas, which was  classified in 2012. Finally,  you will visit Évora, a city considered a living museum, whose city cen- tre was  classified in 1986. It’s a city  full of authenticity with well preserved cultural heritage.

The tour around the wonders of Portugal will end here. There is still the possibility to continue the tour visiting other classified sites in the island  of Madeira – The Lauris- silva Forest  – and in the islands of Azores – the city centre of Angra  do Heroísmo and the vineyards of Pico.
