Know More about this tour

In the middle of the 12th century, the first king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, agrees with the Religious Order of the Cisterians the built of the Royal Abbey of Santa Maria de Alcobaa (UNESCO heritage), the first entirely Gothic Portuguese construction.

Throughout the remaining Middle - Ages, the Cistercian monks had a major role diffusing the young Portuguese language and in the development of agriculture techniques.

At the abbey, since 1269 was established the first Public school, and also assistance and work for the less favoured.

Also at the abbey the remarkable tombs of King Peter I and Ines de Castro, a tragic and beautiful love story, lovers side by side for eternity.

(Upon arrival we strongly recommend a cup of coffee and the famous monastic pastries at the Alcoa pastry coffee shop. After the visit to the Abbey a short visit to the SPAL Ceramics).

Free time for lunch at the fishing village of Nazar, outstanding for its sea related traditions and sightseeing. Stanley Kubrik and Cartier-Bresson were some of the famous worldwide photographers that lost their way photographing the village and its traditions.

The giant 30 meters waves that Garrett McNamara surfed are famous worldwide.

After Lunch, get into the narrow alleys of bidos, a medieval wall surrounded the village, conquered from the Moors in 1148, and taste the famous bidos cherry liqueur, a cultural heritage from that Era.
