Full description

Ready to begin a private journey through the magical town of Barcelos?

Your pick up will be in front of your hotel in a comfortable minibus towards the birthplace of one of the greatest national icons: the Rooster of Barcelos (Galo de Barcelos). No, we will not tell you this story; wait to find out there! Discover everything about Barcelos and the Portuguese identity in this private tour. You will be surprised!

Cross the Gothic Bridge (considered National Monument) over the Cávado river and reach the pleasant medieval atmosphere of Barcelos. Besides its architecture, its historic traditions and cultural value, Barcelos is also famous for its artisanal heritage such as pottery and ceramics.  

Discover the Santa Maria Maior Church, built in the 14th-century, a hidden gem with several Gothic features in a Romanesque structure. Behold the old-blue tile panels, the gold altars, and the magical circular stained glass windows.

Then, find important pieces of the Portuguese History in ruins of the Counts of Barcelos Palace, also classified as a National Monument. Have the opportunity to explore this great element of the historical medieval heritage of Barcelos in a unique landscape.

Did you know that Barcelos is also known for its large weekly market in the Campo da República square? If you have the chance, visit this colorful market, which sells crafts, clothes, pottery, vegetables, and fruit. Take a souvenir to remember this great experience in one of the most beautiful cities in the North of Portugal.

Explore the historical city center, where you will find several images of the legendary Rooster and the wonderful sceneries of the medieval streets surrounded by beautiful Baroque houses.

By the end of this tour, you will return safely to Porto and the guide will drop you off at your accommodation.
