Today, our trip will explore the Minho Region, considered the greenest region of Portugal. With impressive natural landscapes, this region is also known for its traditions, customs and History. Our tour will take us to Braga and Guimarães. Braga, Portugal’s third-largest city, is an elegant town laced with ancient narrow lanes closed to vehicles, strewn with plazas and a splendid array of baroque churches. Here, we will discover the magnificence of its Cathedral and the famous Sanctuary of Bom Jesus, with its impressive stairway.
Then, we will travel to Guimarães, also known as the "Cradle City". A visit to this historic city is worthwhile due to its historic center, the rickety houses and medieval buildings, classified in 2001 as World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Here, we will visit its imposing Castle, the birthplace of D. Afonso Henriques, first king of Portugal, and we will stroll through its charming streets. Accommodation in Porto.
