Your Guided Group Holiday To Northern Portugal & Santiago de Compostela 

Travel with us to experience an authentic slice of Portuguese life as well as one of Spain’s most famous pilgrimage sites on our 7-night holiday to Northern Portugal and Santiago de Compostela. We’ll have the chance to explore the buzzing streets of Porto and enjoy an authentic wine tasting in one of the city’s port cellars followed by a relaxing boat trip along the beautiful Douro River. Discover the historic towns of Braga, the oldest Christian city in Portugal and home to The Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte; and Guimaraes, the birthplace of the first King of Portugal. Finally, we’ll travel northwards across the Spanish border to Santiago de Compostela and enjoy a guided tour of the city’s historic centre including a visit to the Cathedral of Santiago, the final stop on the famous pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago.

Please note: The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is open and under renovations in preparation for the Pope’s visit in 2021.
