Roundtrip Portugal

Tour Portugal: Ancient Megaliths and Templars

This week we travel through mystical Portugal and explore ancient cultures. Portugal has a large number of megalithic monuments, some of which may be much older than we can imagine right now. More and more information about great, worldwide civilizations around the end of the ice age is surfacing. Are the remains of this in Portugal, among other places, to be found? In addition, the country is the cradle of the Knights Templar.

At all these places we will reflect on them together in order to be able to resonate well. It is possible that the information will continue to work for some time to come. The power places have certain themes, which will also be taught during the trip. It is a group trip, but at the same time a wonderful individual adventure!

Broadlines

Incas in Portugal? In Panoias we find stone structures that are more reminiscent of Inca structures. Could it be that the remains here are much older than we might suspect?
