In addition to the lessons, you'll get an opportunity to explore the Medieval parts of the region, like Santarém and Óbidos. The program is very relaxing and still entertaining. Ribatejo's combination of cultural traditions, natural beauty, agricultural richness and historical heritage make it a very diverse region in Portugal.
