This Portugal Bike Tour in Portugal begins in Fatima, the most sacred place in Portugal. This is the place where it is said that Our Lady appeared to three children while they were herding their sheep in 1917. Since then it is a world-known pilgrimage place that was visited several times by more than one Pope.
The overall difficulty level of this tour is 2, Moderate (more precisely, level 2.2 between 1~5). It is recommended for enthusiast bikers.
You will see several castles and an amazing Monastery. You will ride along the sea, admiring the beautiful and well preserved long coast known by the Silver Coast, and you will ride along agrarian fields with different crops and different colors.
You will cycle towards the most typical beach in Portugal. This is a place full of old traditions and today we can still see fishermen drying fish under the sun as they did in the past.
One of the highlights of this bicycle tour in Portugal is the most-well preserved medieval town in Portugal. Originally a Roman village, it was taken from the Moors in 1148. Its castle is classified as a national monument and it is a perfect example of a medieval fortress. This is a “village-museum”, perfectly preserved and walled by its high walls which perpetuate its medieval character.
On the last day you will get to Peniche, a place of fishing traditions. You will ride towards Cape Carvoeiro admiring a beautiful scenery along the sea. Here the wind and the sea work together making the most interesting shapes of the rocks.
