Tour Details


This pleasant city contains the history of the foundation of Portugal. Therefore, we invite you to see for yourself some of the legacy that our ancestors left, for us to remember them.

Our tour begins at the Guimarães Castle and the famous Saint Michael’s Chapel where, according to the legend, the first King of Portugal was baptized. Wright next to them is the Palace of the Duques of Braganza.

After, we will walk towards the lower part of the town, experiencing its old medieval streets and squares, where you will have the opportunity to taste the traditional flavors of the Tortas de Guimarães or the well-known Toucinho do Céu. The morning ends next to the Church of Our Lady of the Olive Tree.

Braga's Cathedral


The visit to the Archbishops City starts right in the middle of its religious and historical heritage. After passing through the Arch of the New Door, you will see the most famous Portuguese Cathedral, along with its interior, cloister and large reliquary.

We proceed through the narrow streets, discovering places such as the Coimbra’s Chapel, the Episcopal Palace, the Garden of Saint Barbara, and more.

We are guessing that you main want to grab a coffee, or have a snack, or even do some shopping, so we can spare you some free time.

Next, we will show you one of the most famous sanctuaries of our country – The Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte. It has a magnificent view, for it is on the top of a hill, wonderful gardens, with lakes and small caves, and the superb staircase, with fountains, sculptures, and a unique representation of the Holly Path. The only inconvenient are the hundreds of stairs. However you don’t have to worry, for we won’t climb them. Instead we will go down, finishing our tour at the bottom, where transportation will wait for you.
