Chaves 4x4 Tour
At the scheduled time, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Chaves on board a 4x4 vehicle.
First, we'll head to the castle of Chaves, where we'll learn about the history of this legendary medieval fortification. This is not the only monument from that decade still standing in the city, we'll also visit the forts of São Francisco and São Neutel, and discover their exciting past.
We'll continue the tour of Chaves, with its famous stone bridge over the Tâmega River. Did you know that Trajan, the first Hispanic emperor in history, ordered the construction of this footbridge? From there, we'll move by 4x4 to the outskirts of Chaves to see the main monuments of its region.
During the route, we'll cross the border between Spain and Portugal. There we'll tell you some stories about the smugglers who were dealing with goods between Galicia and Portugal. We'll continue the tour by visiting the ruins of Monforte Castle, which is located a few kilometres from the border between the north of Portugal and the south of the Galician province of Orense.
From the castle, we'll return to Chaves to visit its famous Roman thermal baths. After a journey of three and a half hours, we'll finish the tour by returning you to your hotel.
