Portuguese Escape

Experience Portugal at a relaxed pace while taking in the important cities of Lisbon and Oporto—typical towns and villages and the stunning north-west coastline. Throughout this tour, you’ll visit the must-see attractions, including the 16th century Jeronimos Monastery. Often regarded as Lisbon’s most important landmark, it was traditional for Portuguese seafarers to pray in the chapel before their departure to the unknown.

You’ll visit the Sanctuary of our Lady of the Rosary in Fatima, a pilgrimage site where apparitions of the Virgin Mary were reported by three local children in 1917; the 700-year-old university in Coimbra; the Arabian Hall and the Church of Sao Francisco in Oporto, and the Ossuary Chapel in Evora, with its bone- and skull-covered walls. For this exceptional escorted tour of Portugal, Globus has arranged some special treats so that you can savor Portuguese cuisine and wine. Enjoy an olive oil tasting in Belmonte (birthplace of Pedro Alvares Cabral, discoverer of Brazil), and tapas with wine at the Quinta de Aveleda winery. All of this and much more await you on this wonderful Portuguese Escape!
