Full description

This exciting private journey on a comfortable air-conditioned minivan starts after your guide collects you at your accommodation.

Our first stop will be in the beautiful city of Viana do Castelo. With an appealing medieval center, lovely beaches, and bathed by a stunning river, Viana do Castelo is also considered the "Mecca of Architecture" thanks to the many and important names of contemporary Portuguese architecture. The modernity and the heritage combine perfectly in this charming city. 

Have you ever heard about the Viana's Heart (Coração de Viana)? It is the main heart-shaped gold medal that the women of the Minho bring in their neck. Explore the symbology of this element and understand its connection to Viana do Castelo city!

Visit the Sanctuary of Santa Luzia, a gothic building located on a high hill that provides specular views for miles and miles away. Simply breathtaking! Do not miss the chance of climbing up the Zimbório (the sanctuary pinnacle) to admire a superb 360º view of the region, considered one of the best in the world!

It's now time to discover the oldest village in Portugal, famous for its legendary medieval bridge: visit Ponte De Lima! Have the opportunity to walk on the Roman pedestrian bridge, built over the Lima river, the witness of years and years of history. Travel back in time and explore the medieval curiosities of this place. You will never get tired of this beautiful little town, with a huge heritage in its historic center: plenty of gardens, fancy mansions, and historical buildings.

Our private tour will continue towards the amazing city of Valença do Minho that owns a well-preserved military Fortress with a thick protective wall with more than 5km of length: an engineering wonder constructed in Vauban style. Built in the 17th-century to protect the city from the Spanish attacks, this monument has a strong heritage and historic value.

Have some free time to explore this great landmark of the Alto Minho region. Also, be surprised by the unique landscapes of the old bridge that connects two countries: Portugal and Spain.

Return to Porto city and let your guide bring you back to your accommodation.
