  • We made a one-week cruise with CroisEurope departing from Porto to the Spanish border. What happiness, despite the rainy weather at the beginning of the stay, beautiful landscapes, superb excursions and extraordinary people. I recommend this cruise to everyone

  • We did the walk down the river below the bridges, the view is beautiful, and the walk really enjoyable. YOU can also walk along the banks of the river. Beautiful. If there is sun wear lenses and sunscreen
