Depart from Vigo to the south of the province of Pontevedra, crossing the Portuguese border to arrive at the village of Valensa do Minho. Follow a guided tour to explore the city's fortress, before having some free time for independent exploration. Your next stop will return you to Spain for a tour of the beautiful walled medieval city of Tui. Visit the imposing 12th century cathedral, which was converted into a fortress to protect against invasion. With incredible contrasting views, the city of Tui and Valensa provide a glimpse into the shared history of these two countries.
This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometer), with cobblestones and inclines at the fortresses, a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 15 steps at the sites visited. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility but is not wheelchair accessible. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended.
