Chaves 4x4 Tour
At the scheduled time, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Montalegre in a 4x4 vehicle to set off for the city of Chaves in the north of Portugal.
Upon arrival, we'll visit the medieval castle of Chaves. This fortress, which currently houses a military museum, has witnessed the conflicts between Spain and Portugal.
We'll then visit the forts of São Francisco and São Neutel, 17th-century buildings built to defend the city from the Spanish. The next stop will be the beautiful Roman bridge over the Tâmega River, built under the orders of Trajan, the first Hispanic emperor, whose arches have remained intact since Roman times!
Afterward, we'll return to Chaves to visit the Roman thermal baths, an important meeting place for the society of the time. Did you know that its medicinal waters are among the warmest in Europe?
After about three and a half hours on the road, we'll return to Montalegre and take you back to your hotel.
