Hi, I'm Mónica. I like to know the places I visit, to understand a little bit more, the place and people. So, I'm hoping to show you my hometown, and seduce you to come and return, because it is small, but it has so much history and beauty places to enjoy. On this tour I will try to show you the main points in the town: Main square (Praça da Republica), the synagogue, the church of St. Francis of Sissi´s, the match box museum, the church of st maria, the church of st iria, and even the gardens (Mouchão and 7 hill garden)... and if you really like to walk, we can climb together to another church (N. Srª da Piedade), and even walk (or by car) go to the Pegões aquaduct.

We have booked a tour with Monica on a very short notice and luckily Monica was available. She very kind, professional and knowledgeable and went the extra mile for us. As she has a history degree you can really ask any question and she will give you an answer. Very happy. Would definitely recommend.

Monica was a great tour guide. She showed us places and told us details that we never would have found on our own. She is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly and the walking is not too strenuous. I highly recommend Monica.
