El Puerto de Santa Maria Walking Tour

Delve deep into 15th century Spain and follow in the footsteps of Christopher Columbus, exploring the riverside town of El Puerto de Santa Maria.

El Puerto de Santa Maria Walking Tour Itinerary

On the morning of your tour, you'll meet your guide at the historic Monasterio de la Victoria, a former monastery located next to the train station in El Puerto de Santa Maria.

Begin your guided tour in the Archive of the Indias; an iconic attraction where historic documents from the history of the city are kept, in a building with a history almost as long. Did you know it was once sacked by Anglo-Dutch troops?

Stroll along the banks of the river Guadalate next, taking in the views as you learn all about the significance of this town in Columbus' expeditions to the Americas, and later as a merchant port for international trade. You'll see El Puerto de Santa María's iconic historic sights, like the old port, the traders' marketplace and the customs buildings.

Next, the tour takes in the Mayor Prioral Church, found in Plaza de España. This church was built in the high part of the city, and its construction coincides with the golden age of the Medinaceli dukes, just as with the majority of the major buildings in the area.

Finish off your guided walking tour of El Puerto after approximately two hours, learning about how the town has changed and developed over history.
