Figueira da Foz Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel in Coimbra, you'll be taken to the coastal city of Figueira da Foz, where you'll head straight to Praia da Claridade, one of the favourite beaches of the Portuguese locals.
Stroll along its beautiful golden sands and make the most of the opportunity for some incredible photos, before heading to the area's famous salt flats. You'll visit the Figueira da Foz Salt Museum for an in depth look into the importance of salt here, as well as discovering the salt production process first-hand.
Driving through the expansive corn and rice plantations of Baixo Mondego, you'll reach the Castle of Montemor-o-Velho, where you'll make a stop for around 30 minutes. This Medieval fortress, built between the 10th and 15th centuries, was the residence of Portugal's royal family for many years. Strategically located on a hilltop overlooking the surrounding valleys, its fortified walls witnessed numerous battles between Muslims and Christians. Discover the legends that surround the mythical castle, and decide for yourself if they're true!
For the finishing touch on your Figueira da Foz tour, you'll treat your tastebuds to a typical Portuguese pastry known as a Pastel de Tentúgal. The sweet treat, considered one of the seven wonders of Portuguese cuisine, combines filo pastry, cinnamon, eggs and sugar. Delicious!
Having enjoyed an excellent day full of beautiful beaches and fascinating history, you'll return to Coimbra to be dropped back off at your hotel.
