About the tour

This fabulous city has a lot to discover, famous because of a defense system named Torres Vedras lines, created to block Napoleon soldiers during the Napoleon invasions between Portugalbetween 1808 -1814 and some famous battles. Something typical from Torres Vedras is our unique been pastry that takes everyone to haven when tasted, we will pass by Fabrica da Coroa for you to know where to buy the best ones. The first documented occupation is dated from III a.C, we will visit our Castle with almost 900-year-old, around this historical center we have Moorish elements, Roman, Jewish, and a lot more! TorresVedras is considered the city with the most traditional Carnival in Portugal where our King and Queen are both males, I will tell you why:). This trip will reveal another layer of my beautiful country that only a few people know. Be prepared to put this city on your list of places to visit.

I enjoy Igor’s tours as he takes us to places that are under the radar which makes it more interesting to see places we wouldn’t normally go to visit. I have a new love of Portugal now due to Igor’s fun and interesting tours!
