We prepared this journey for you with the aim of offering an essentially flat track. The roads we cross lead us to quite deserted villages, but where the few inhabitants we meet, show us their natural sympathy by inviting us to their homes and telling us stories of ancient times. The accommodation in home-stay tourism allow us to be close to the local history. As we are so close to Spain, we could not resist making some small inroads into our neighboring country. The arrival at Almeida is one of the highlights of this trip, the entrance through the town is done with some excitement – a wonderful achievement in an environment where you can breathe history. The visit to this Fortress, that resisted the French invasion, has a very rich history, that is why we chose it on purpose for the end of this tour and thus take us on a journey into the past.
