What to Expect
After a pick-up at your hotel you’ll head off on a full-day trip to explore the city of Santarém.

Santarém, inhabited since prehistoric times, is home to a castle and the Church of Grace, where the famous navigator Pedro Alvares Cabral is buried.

Your excursion will take you to Almourol castle, one of the best examples of medieval military architecture and at the same time a fairy-tale island castle that appears to be floating on the Tagus River.

Next stop is Tomar, a city that’s home to the stunning castle of the Knights Templar and the 12th-century Convent of the Order of Christ, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was originally a Templar stronghold for the knights while they were being chased throughout the world.

For a change of pace you’ll next head to the country’s most amazing caves. Covering an area of 10,000 square meters, Mira de Aire is illuminated by more than 3,000 lamps. Outside the caves is an aquatic park and nature park.
