With ancient castles, Roman ruins, groves of lemon and almond trees, quiet whitewashed villages and kind, gentle people, Portugal is waiting to be explored. Now, Brazosport College is providing an opportunity to see this magical destination firsthand.

Brazosport College Community Education’s Travel Program is currently offering an incredible 10-day trip to Portugal, scheduled from March 8 through 17, 2019.

The tour has everything desired for a trip of a lifetime to Portugal. A few of the highlights include: 

—  Stop in historic Evora, known as the “Museum City of Portugal.”

—  Overnight among the vineyards and farmland in the heart of the Alentejo region.

—  Venture to Lagos, where Prince Henry the Navigator began his explorations.

—  Spend three nights on the sunny coast of the Algarve.

—  Stay for three nights at a coastal resort on the Portuguese Riviera. Tour Lisbon, Portugal’s capital that overlooks the Tagus River.

—  Experience local cuisine and wine while immersed in the moving sounds of Fado.

—  Indulge in a winery tour and a tasting of the Alentejo region’s wine.

These activities only scratch the surface of everything offered in this exclusive trip. 

To learn more about this vacation, BC Community Education will be holding an information session at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 15 in Room B.110 on the Brazosport College campus. The session will have representatives discussing the program and answering questions. Opportunities will also be available to sign up for the trip.
