Historical Centers, Guimarães's Castle 10th Century, Palace of the Dukes, Bom Jesus and Sameiro Sanctuaries


A journey through history from the foundation of Portugal to the establishment of Catholic Empire. Experience the North, two cities that were important in establishing the kingdom of Portugal.

Braga is a profound religious city and this journey will get you in touch with the well-known Triangle of Faith: The Cathedral, The Sanctuaries of Sameiro and Bom Jesus.

Close to 12:30 is time for a delicious Traditional Portuguese Lunch with "Vinho Verde" (green wine) that is the magnificent sparkling wine of the Region.

Then I will drive you to Guimarães which is the birthplace of Portugal Nation. We start by visiting the Guimarãe's Castle located oven a hill. From one of its seven towers located over you will observe the wonderful city view.

On our way to Guimarães historical center (UNESCO Site), I will describe some of the most important buildings, such as The Palace of the Dukes of Braganza.
