What to expect

Discover 2 beautiful cities of southern Europe on a full-day sightseeing tour from Porto, crossing the border into Spain to explore the pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia and returning via Viana do Castelo.

Description

One of the most important pilgrimage destinations in the world, Santiago is best known for the Caminhos de Santiago (St. James Way), the trails following the cult of St. James. Upon arrival, you will visit the magnificent 11th-century cathedral, dedicated to the apostle.

Originally built in a Romanesque style, today the cathedral is an amalgam of harmonious influences. You will have the opportunity to attend mass if you wish, and there will be free time for lunch and a stroll in the UNESCO World Heritage city center.

In the afternoon, drive back to Porto, stopping in Viana do Castelo at the mouth of the Lima River. Founded in 1258, the former village became an important trading post for Portugal’s New World adventures, processing glass, silver and tapestry and eventually becoming the Nautical Capital of Europe.

You will visit the Romanesque Cathedral, where you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean. Then, stroll the charming city center, filled with buildings from the 16th-century built on the profits of Portugal’s maritime adventures.
