Portugal In Depth
This vacation shows you all of Portugal at a relaxed pace, thanks to the well-planned two-night stopovers in Lisbon, Porto, and the Algarve, and overnights in Tomar, Viseu, and Evora. Start and end in Lisbon, and see both the internal and coastline of Portugal. Throughout this Portugal tour, visit the must-see attractions, including the Ossuary Chapel in Evora, its walls covered with thousands of human bones and skulls; the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Fátima, a pilgrimage site where apparitions of the Virgin Mary were reported by three local shepherd children in 1917; the Church of São Francisco in Porto, the city’s most important gothic monument originating from the 14th century; and Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon. Built in the 16th century and now regarded as Lisbon’s most important landmark, it was traditional for Portuguese seafarers to pray in the chapel before their departure to the unknown.Visit the 700-year-old University of Coimbra, and a cork factory in Evora; spend time in the Algarve, Portugal’s most popular vacation area, and enjoy an excursion to the Promontory of Sagres, where Henry the Navigator lived and planned his overseas expansion. For those interested in food and wine, Globus has arranged some special treats for you. Enjoy an olive oil tasting in Belmonte (birthplace of Pedro Alvares Cabral, discoverer of Brazil), a wine tasting at a Port wine cellar in Porto, Portuguese tapas specialties at a winery, and a cocktail and farewell dinner in Lisbon.
