Tour "In the Footsteps of the Explorers"

per tour 240


This is a unique tour where you can not only see the most incredible corners of the Algarve but also hear fascinating stories about the beginning of maritime discoveries.
The name of the tour carries a double meaning: you can visit the historical sites of the first explorers of new lands, or you can feel like an explorer of the Algarve itself, such a beautiful corner of the earth.
It is perfect for those interested in the history of Portugal and the maritime discoveries of the New World.
