Portugal
22,000 years of History, Gastronomy, and Wine adventure!

The Muse Polyhymnia, who influenced the arts, dance, religion, and politics, sent me, Taras, on a 12-day task to explore the authentic side of Portugal.

I experienced a vast period of history, in a short space of time, which you can too! 

Some of the highlights I discovered:
  • the Portuguese legacy, covering: the Almendres Cromlech, and caves (with its rock painting) and the Côa engravings;
  • the villages and the Castreja culture and their struggles against roman invasions;
  • Roman influence, temples, and gods;
  • the Arabic presence
  • the affirming of Christianity in the independence of Portugal
  • the consecration of Fatima as the altar of the world.

This adventure showed me the continuous interdependence between temporal and religious power and how together they were weaving and structuring a cultural, religious, and political identity. A lifestyle both rich and autonomous.

11 nights/12 days starting from £2750, including 5 dinners,  educational materials, local passionate guides, all transport, transfers, and accommodation (flights are not included) and starts from

News, from Taras, inspired by the Muses

Hello, I am Taras the son of Poseidon (the God of the seas) and an unnamed sea-nymph (they met across the Ionian Sea in Hesperia). Sadly, I am a lesser-known cousin to the Nine Muses but the founder of the Greek colony, which of course I named after myself, Taras! I love to travel and what better way than on a back of a dolphin!

Each of the Nine Muses, in their ArchaeoMuses form, have been setting challenging, yet not impossible, tasks for me, leading to my numerous adventures, discoveries, and explorations. I share these unique experiences to ignite and inspire you. Look out for Taras' Tips throughout the website and below!

I and the team look forward to personalising your next, unforgettable, and truly unique adventure designed around one or more of The Muses. 

Happy Travels, Taras!
