Viana do Castelo & Ponte de Lima Day Trip
At 9 am, we'll pick you up at the point in Oporto of your choice and head to Viana do Castelo, an hour away by minibus.
Once there, we'll pass through the town centre, seeing the famous tiles that characterise the country at every step. We'll also see the Gil Eanes ship, which served for years as a hospital ship for cod fishermen in northern Europe.
The tour will continue to Mount Santa Luzia, where the sanctuary of the same name awaits us. As we enter the Basilica of Santa Lucia, you'll see the second largest rose windows in all of Europe. After two and a half hours admiring the treasures of Viana do Castelo, we'll set off for our next stop.
As soon as we arrive in Ponte de Lima, we'll enjoy a delicious meal in a local restaurant. Next, we'll take a guided tour of the historic centre, to see the Ponte Romana, the Torre da Cadeia Velha and the Igreja Matriz, among other surprises.
Before returning to Porto, we'll stop at Arcos de Valdevez, where we'll sample the product par excellence of the area, the famous green wine. Let's enjoy!
