This Portugal Tour begins in Peniche, a place of fishing traditions. You will ride towards Cape Carvoeiro admiring a beautiful scenery along the sea. Here the wind and the sea work together making the most interesting shapes on the rocks.
One of the highlights of this tour is the Medieval Town of Óbidos. Originally a Roman village, it was taken from the Moors in 1148. Its castle is classified as a national monument and it is a perfect example of a medieval fortress. This is a “village-museum”, perfectly preserved and walled by its high walls which perpetuate its medieval character.
You will ride along the sea admiring the beautiful view and you will ride along agrarian fields with different crops and different colours.
On the last day you will ride towards the coast to Nazaré, the most typical beach in Portugal. This is a place full of old traditions and today we can still see fishermen drying fish under the sun as they did in the past. This is also a wonderful place to refresh ourselves in the blue waters or take a walk along the golden sand
