Take a tour of three of Portugal's most iconic Medieval cities and Monasteries. Today we'll see the gorgeous cliffs of Portugal, the interior lands and picturesque villages all with a knowledgeable and fun guide!
What to Expect
Portugal is a wonder for the senses. The sheer cliffs falling off into the deep blue sea, the rolling hills, and of course, the lovely Medieval towns that make this iconic land so beautiful. Today we will visit three of the best towns: Obidos, The Monesteries of Alcobaça and of Batalha.
Your guide will first take you on a tour of Obidos, a beautiful walled city which literally means "fortress" in Latin. The town dates all the way back into the 8th century, although most of what we see today comes from the later 12th and 13th centuries. Here we'll also get a chance to take a sip of the local Ginja liqueur!
Following the coast to São Martinho do Porto and Nazaré, we continue on to the next village: the Monastery of Alcobaça. Here we'll marvel at some of the most exquisite examples of Gothic architecture Portugal has to offer. This UNESCO World Heritage Site will thrill you with its gorgeous facade and lush interiors. Your guide will make sure you know all the good details as we explore these monuments.
Finally, we visit the Monastery of Batalha. One of the best examples of Late Gothic Architecture, it was built to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory at the Battle of Aljubarrota. It took over a century to build, and you'll soon discover why!
