All about the Porto Santo Cultural Tour.

We will leave the Hotel to the North to visit the inspiring Cardina Ethnographic Museum, and for a Porto Santo wine tasting. The Museum has the octagonal shape of the typical Mill and presents old tools for farming, fishing and handicraft, and stunning miniatures of Porto Santo’s fountains. We’ll continue to the City Centre to visit the historic Pier that was the only access to the island, for small and medium-sized boats, until 1984. Then we’ll visit the Monument to the Discoverers and Our Lady of Pity’s Main Church. The Christopher Columbus House Museum will give you a feel for the island’s history and its very famous traveller, who lived here for several years. We’ll end the tour with a taste of local food specialities before returning to the Hotel. BOOK NOW!
