Coimbra - Óbidos, Batalha and Alcobaça - Best of History

"We will follow the paths of the noblest warriors of the country. We'll go to the place where an army of a few showed that quantity is not necessarily synonymous of quality.

We will have time to relax with a glass of wine and think that the heroic deeds of the past influence us today as motivation to fulfill our dreams. Let's all together push forward!"
