Guimaraes Day Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Braga at the selected time and set off on a bus journey to Guimaraes.
Our visit to "the cradle city" of Portugal will begin at the Castle of Guimaraes, where we'll enjoy a guided tour of the birthplace of Alfonso Henriques, Portugal's first king.
Next, we'll head to the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza to explore its halls, courtyard and chapel. Its Burgundian style will take us back to a medieval past. When we finish the tour, we'll visit the Church of São Miguel do Castelo, where King Alfonso I was baptized.
Afterwards, we'll go on a guided tour of the historic centre that still maintains is magnificent medieval architecture. And we won't leave without seeing the old olive tree in Largo da Oliveira or the magnificent Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira church.
To finish, we'll taste some typical products such as Portugal's sweet cakes. At the end of the trip, we'll make our way back to Braga and drop you off at your hotel.
