Guimarães

In the north of Portugal, we find the charming city of Guimarães, commonly known as Portugal's birthplace, since it was there that the first king of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques, was born. So, this city has a lot of history that ends up being reflected in numerous monuments and buildings scattered throughout the city, which give it a medieval environment and transport us to a distant time.

Guimarães is the perfect example of a traditional Portuguese city, and it has so much to offer. Guimarães is characterized by narrow streets and beautiful arches connecting them, by the counters and granite porch, by the churches and the houses, by the charming squares that surround the city’s people... where each one of these features makes you fall in love at first sight and offers Guimarães a unique atmosphere. 

During your visit to Guimarães, you will be able to see the Castelo de Guimarães, a castle which throughout its history has served as the stage for several real conflicts, and the Paço dos Duques, which exposes a collection of objects of Decorative Arts from the 20th century. Getting lost in the medieval streets of the historic center of Guimarães, classified World Heritage by UNESCO will allow you to travel in time and know Historical Buildings, manor houses, craft shops, and other magical places.

Braga

To visit Braga is to do a time travel, it is like being transported to the past, in a place that combines the ancient and the traditional, with the modern and the present. Braga is an ancient city, with more than 2000 years of existence, which is full of stories to tell everywhere, in the streets, in churches, in monuments, in museums. 

Known for its unique churches, 18th-century houses, and beautiful gardens, Braga is a city where religion plays an important role, but it combines its more traditional side with entrepreneurship and the young spirit, always very present. 

During your visit to the city, we suggest going to the Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary and getting lost in the endless staircases that so well characterize this place. After climbing to the top of the Sanctuary prepare for a breathtaking view over the city!

Viana do Castelo

Viana do Castelo is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the north of the country and is a mandatory place in your visit to Portugal. The city’s historic center, with its streets and alleys, is distinctive because of its facades and the panels of colorful tiles that are perfect examples of the history of architecture in Portugal.

The old city quarter dates to the 19th-century and draws attention to its narrow streets, Manueline style houses and palaces. In these avenues and the various buildings, it is possible to perceive the inspirations of different artistic styles, such as Manueline, baroque or Art Deco. Viana do Castelo has a rich heritage marked by its palaces, churches, convents, and fountains, which mesmerize any visitor. 

During your visit to Viana do Castelo, we plan to take you to the sanctuary of Santa Luzia, a Gothic building placed on a high hill, which provides the best views of the region. Also, you can experience the climb to the top of the dome and prepare yourself to fall in love with the wonderful panoramic view of the city.
