With this 4x4 tour you'll visit the Portuguese village of Chaves and its surrounding areas. You'll be able to get to know its most famous monuments and the history of this town, situated in the north of Portugal.
Chaves 4x4 Tour
At the scheduled time we'll pick you up from your hotel in Verín in a 4x4 vehicle to cross the border with Portugal and set off for the northern town of Chaves.
Once there, we'll take a walk through the town to get to know its most emblematic places, such as the medieval castle of Chaves, whose historic keep has been preserved. This fortress, which currently houses a military museum, dates from pre-Roman times and its construction was reinforced during the Muslim occupation.
We'll then go to the forts of São Francisco and São Neutel, defensive buildings erected in the 17th century. From here we'll walk to the Roman bridge over the Tâmega River, built by order of Trajan, the first Hispano-Roman emperor. We'll also see the column with inscriptions commemorating its construction at the end of the 1st century.
We'll then briefly leave the city of Chaves to tour its surroundings. This region in the north of Portugal was the territory of thieves and smugglers in the past. Are you ready to discover its legends?
We'll also visit Monforte Castle, a medieval construction declared a National Monument, and then return to Chaves to see its Roman thermal baths. Did you know that its medicinal waters are among the warmest in Europe?
Finally, after a three and a half hour route, we'll return to Verín and take you back to your hotel.
