Overview

For centuries the foreign travelers who passed through Porto marveled at the wealth of their "gold-lined churches". In fact, Porto has some of the richest, most artistic and original Baroque architecture in Europe. Whatever your religion may be, you will love visiting such magnificent monuments, which are unique throughout Portugal.

Know More about this tour

Portugal is one of the oldest countries in Europe, and is home to a number of historic worship sites, that is why you will see many chapels, churches and monasteries. Gilding in the ornamentation of grand monuments is to Portugal what sculpted marble is to Italy and what sculpted stone is to France. That was the result of the discovery of gold and diamonds in Brazil, and churches in Porto and around Portugal were given splendid golden interiors. So join us in this tour and discover magnificent temples, full of solemnity and wealth, which are by themselves a symbol throughout Portugal, and a good reason to immerse yourself in the history and tradition of this fascinating city.
