Hey travelers!

Are you ready to get to know a little bit more of our wonderful country? What do you think of visiting a beautiful city and experience the funniest traditional party of Portugal?


Trip to Viana do Castelo and Santoinho

Saturday, 25th November 2017  @Reitoria, 13.30pm


Come with us and discover the capital of Portuguese folk culture, the amazing city of Viana do Castelo. We planned a walk to the wonderful medieval center, followed by a visit to the top of Santa Luzia Hill where you can enjoy one of Europe’s most breathtaking landscape. And what about some sweetness? Viana do Castelo is also known by its fantastic “Bolas de Berlim”, a traditional sweet, that you will have the opportunity to taste!

Later, we will take you to the traditional party of Santoinho!!  You can try some typical Portuguese cuisine (grilled meat and Sardines), enjoy a good wine, there will be loads of barrels spread all over the place, from which you can drink as much as you want, and dance to the sound of traditional Portuguese folk music! Fun is guaranteed!
