Immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery of the Algarve. Explore the riverside town of Vila Real de Santo António and enjoy a tranquil boat cruise along the River Guadiana.
Vila Real de Santo António Tour & Boat Cruise
We'll meet at 10 am at the Vila Real de Santo António Marina, where we'll start our boat trip on the River Guadiana.
During the boat tour, we'll pass by the medieval village of Castro Marim to admire its imposing walls and castle. Did you know that this fortress was founded by the Knights of the Templar? We'll also get to see the salt marshes dotted that characterise the landscapes, and where different aquatic birds nest. On the opposite bank of the river, we'll see the Spanish town of Ayamonte, connected to Castro Marim by the Guadiana International Bridge.
At midday, we'll return to dry land for a guided tour of Vila Real de Santo António. We'll delve into the historical and cultural heritage of this city, learning all about its 1755 earthquake, which forced the entire town to be rebuilt. After the tour, we'll enjoy a tasty lunch in a typical restaurant.
You'll then have an hour and a half of free time to stroll around the city and do some shopping.
At the end a day of exploring this region of the Algarve, the tour will end at 4 pm in the centre of Vila Real de Santo António.
