Our tour starts at your hotel, where we'll pick up and drive 50 minutes to Quinta do Gradil, located on the western foothills of the Serra de Montejunto. Here, you will be able to taste this region's wine. An atlantic wine, fruit of the same terroir that give us the Rocha pear from Oeste,  the apple from Alcobaça, and the ginja from Óbidos. You will start  your wine experience by visiting the ruins of the palace and chapel, and looking to the wide range of beautiful vineyards. Next you will visit its winery and learn about the wine process. The wine tour ends on the tasting room where you will taste 4 selected wines.
Before heading to the ocean, we will drive to the top of Serra de Montejunto. There you may expect a breathtaking view of the "Oeste" region.
We will drive then 30 minutes to Peniche, one of the most iconic fishing towns in Portugal. Here, the fish is caught on a sustainable way, on small wooden boats, and with hand knitted nets. It s lunch time, so we will go directly to a local fish restaurant. Don't expect luxuries. This is simple and authentic. You will not find paces like this in Lisbon. Depending on the fish available, the meal will cost around 15€ (not included).
After lunch, we will make a short walking tour through Carvoeiro Cape, one of the most western points of Continental Europe, and make a short Peniche introduction tour.
The next and final stop is in Óbidos, a romantic, lovely and medieval village. This historical village, also considered the city of literature by Unesco, hides peculiar book shops and a yummy bakery cooking family recipes with more than 130 years old. And we can not escape the Ginja (typical cherry liquor) tasting in a chocolate cup.
