Day 4 Vega de Terron - Salamanca (B, L, D)
Today you will delight in your included full day excursion to Salamanca, Spain! Salamanca’s history extends several thousand years back in time, and
the historic center of the city is on UNESCO’s world heritage site. The University of Salamanca is one of the oldest and most famous in Europe. Here, scholars from Christian, Arab and Jewish cultures met from

Do Vallado. Demarcated and regulated way back in 1756 by Marquis de Pombal, this region is known for one of the first “classic” wines in this part of the world. Your tour of the vineyard will include tasting of some of the best wines of the region. Return to the ship in Pinhão. Take the opportunity to take a stroll in the old town of Pinhão on your own.
