This full day 9-hour tour through the Minho Region will take you exploring Braga, one of the oldest Christian cities in the world and Guimarães, also known as “The Cradle of Portugal”.

After checking in and meeting with your English speaking guide at the designated meeting point, we’ll start our exciting journey towards Braga. Get ready to experience the lush Portuguese landscapes of the countryside, full of green mountains, valleys and rivers. 

Braga, the Capital of the Minho Region

Once in Braga, our first stop will be at the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte, one of the most iconic monuments in Braga and a highlight of this tour. 

You’ll admire in awe the sight of the Baroque stairway climbing 116 meters up to the Church of Bom Jesus. It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019.

Our next stop will be at the impressive Cathedral of Braga (Sé de Braga). Not only is it one of the most important monuments in Portugal, it’s the seat of the Archdiocese of Braga and the oldest cathedral in the country. (It was even built before the founding of Portugal). 

Afterwards, you’ll walk through the historical center of Braga with your tour guide, checking in at some of the most emblematic and picturesque places. You’ll have time to relax and enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch in this fantastic environment.

Guimarães, the birthplace of Portugal

After lunch, we’ll take you to Guimarães, a World Heritage Site considered to be the birthplace of Portugal. Its history is closely linked to the foundation of the country and its national identity. 

One of Guimarães biggest landmarks is its 10th-century castle, considered a national symbol. You’ll enjoy the entrance to this medieval monument that offers breathtaking views of the city. We’ll soon head to the Palace of the Bragança Dukes and visit the São Miguel Church. We’ll also discover monuments like the Santa Maria Street, the City Hall, the Santiago Square, and the Senhora da Oliveira Church. 

After enjoying our Minho Tour, you will have discovered one of the most beautiful and historical regions in Portugal!

A perfect cultural day trip from Porto
Well-paced, enough time to explore Braga and Guimaraes on our own (especially for pics). Both our tour guide (Christian) and driver were excellent company throughout the tour.

A great guide with excellent local knowledge!
A wonderful opportunity to explore a little further afield while in Porto. I especially enjoyed the small group tour and the minivan was very comfortable to travel in. Andre was impressive with his knowledge of the locations and their history - he went out of our way to ensure we had an enjoyable day and looked after our comfort. The air-conditioning and the complimentary bottled water provided on the tour was greatly appreciated on a day in the mid-thirties. Being guided as well as having the advantage of some time to stroll and appreciate the sites independently made this a great day for us. Thank you!
