Your fantastic day begins with a 9am pickup at your accommodation (possible in Lisbon, Cascais, Ericeira or Sintra) and from
there, enjoy the relaxed countryside views while we ride to Mafra, just 40 minutes from Lisbon, in your comfortable air-conditioned Wonder Vehicle with free Wi-Fi on-board .
We arrived to Mafra’s convent or Mafra's National Palace as it is called, an amazing masterpiece from the eighteenth century and one of the most important monuments of Portugal, unique for its two carillons with 92 bells, 1200 rooms, over 4,700 doors and windows and the oldest library in the country with about 36,000 volumes of books and transcripts. If you think this is a lot of information, wait to hear everything your friendly guide has to tell you about the biggest monument in Portugal.
After Mafra we venture to the quaint Portuguese one of a kind village of José Franco. This man was a sculptor and a poet who decided to build a living museum to show the customs, labor activities and other aspects of Portuguese rural life back in his time - 1945. The result is a giant museum made into a village that draws attention not only to preserve the memory of an era, but also for the perfectionism in small details.
Next we head to Ericeira the village where the royal family embarked into exile to England and in another completely different scene - the first World Surfing Reserve in Europe and 2nd in the world, a touristic village also known for its blue and white colored streets and houses. In Ericeira – ‘’where the sea is bluer’ enjoy your free time, for possibly a leisurely Portuguese lunch (not included) or a stroll through the town and by the seaside while you sink in this Vila’s different scenarios – a rural fishing village full of history and at the same time a touristic center of Surf.
Last but not least, to finish this exclusive day, a tour to an exquisite winery & cellar to a tasting and historical experience that will provide you with a fascinating insight into the world of Portugal’s wine production. A family run business that welcomes you for an entertaining and enlightening tour around vines and cellars, to discover the secrets of the wine making process revealed by the
experts, experience how wine is produced from harvest until it reaches your table and enjoy a tasting session of six different wines (four local wines and two other magnificent wines) accompanied by local bread and olives.
A one of a kind Tour with as much character as the places you will visit, made for wine and history lovers a tasting and historical experience that will provide you with a fascinating insight into the world of Portuguese antique costumes.
