Full description
Guimarães is one of the most important cities in Portugal, with the reason for this being that it was in this city that the foundation of the country began. In Gimarães lived a lord "D. Afonso Henrique", who wanted to have his own country, and therefore had to fight against both his mother and his king. He was successful, which lead to Portugal becoming the country it is today.

In this experience you will visit the most emblematic and important places of Guimãres, such as the castle and the cathedral, where you will learn a little of the history of these important structures. Following a few hours of touring, you will take a well-deserved lunch break in an authentically typical restaurant nearby.

Following lunch, you will arrive to Braga. Braga is another incredible city in which you visit several of the most interesting spots, even sampling some typical dishes and trying some wine. Whilst here you will also visit the incredible monastery, which provides the best views of the city.
