HIGHLIGHTS
MORE INFORMATION

Those who discover the North of Portugal always visit Braga and Guimarães, and the short distance from Porto makes these cities unmissable. Guimarães is historical, from where imposing monuments like the famous Castle, or the Dukes' Palace stand out; churches and oratories in each corner mark the deeply religious spirit that has always been present here, and on the mountain tops we find shrines, places of prayer, pilgrimages, from the penance climbing, to the glory of reaching the heights. Here we live with history and tradition, of the city that is proud to be the birthplace of Portugal. Wooden windows, granite stonework, Gothic arches and wrought iron make Guimarães a medieval scenery. Its esplanade squares invite us to a pause, in a time back in centuries, where for a moment we forget everything and enjoy the peace of those who do not live in a hurry. Between mountains crowned by ancient shrines, everything that the eye reaches, evokes peace and spirituality: this is Braga, a religious city, closely linked to its devotions and customs, and at the same time surprisingly young and innovative, with its universities and research centres. Here, time does not pass quickly either, except when we live this city to the fullest. Arcades, baroque buildings, esplanade squares and secular stones, where every nook is a treasure to be discovered. Not to miss the Braga Cathedral, one of the oldest monuments in the country, and a walk through the historical centre.
