Making a detour by one of the most famous surf spots in the world will confirm that Portugal is a growing star in this sport activity with its extraordinary waves. The next stage will take us to one of the most beautiful monasteries erected during the Portuguese monarchy in the 14th century.progress.
Before reaching the little Portuguese Venice with its gondolas, we will have a stop at one of the oldest universities in Europe. Founded at the end of the 13th century, it still welcomes students to this day and has a sumptuous Baroque library.
We leave city life and driving to the north to one of the most beautiful castles in Portugal. It is called Guimarães castle and is looking like it was build only 100 years ago, as it is well preserved. Dom Henrique, future king of Protugal was born here in 1394. We end the day near the Gerês National Park.
Known for being the first wine area in Portugal, the Douro Valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. Some call it "the enchanting" so its beauty is amazing. Banks, hillsides and winding roads will probably turn into your crush of this road trip. Cruising on the Douro and tasting in the evening will enhance the end of this day.
Portugal is known for its sun, its beaches, its wine, its gastronomy; it is less known for its ski slopes in winter. It is in the heart of the Serra da Estrela that we will ride our motorcycles to discover some curious mountainous features. This day will also give us the opportunity to discover one of the villages where all Portuguese are saying to come from.
The Alentejo plains are overflowing with stories of invasion, conquest, and monarchy, but like the Elvas Viaduct, the region still retains traces of Roman occupation. Dressed in white color, another historic village welcomes us for our evening stopover.
Day off ... Some like it for the sun, others equate it to the French Riviera, the extreme south of the Algarve will offer us a day off for a rest at the beach or, for those who wish it, an immensity of historical, architectural or even natural curiosities like the steeped coastline.
Partly punctuated by a ferry crossing, our route takes us to the heart of the capital and then towards to the western suburbs for an afternoon in the wonderful Pena National Park.We end our day in the historic heart of Cascais.
