XV, we pay homage to the 1st King of Portugal - D. Afonso Henriques - preserved for eternity in the statue of Soares dos Reis.

It is then time to venture into the timeless streets of the Medieval Village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There, you will live the stories, the secrets and, also, taste the gastronomic products that delight the senses of your visitor. Along the ancient alleys and sidewalks, which take us to a medieval tale, we will descend Rua de Santa Maria, to find the fantastic Baroque façade of the former convent of Santa Clara, the medieval square of São Tiago and the legendary Largo da Oliveira.

When you finish, you will take in the heart the memory of one of the most beautiful cities of Portugal.

Upon return, the driver leaves you at your hotel, or other place of your choice.
