Full-Day Tour in Minho with Lunch from Porto
US$104.78
Overview
Discover the beauty of one of Portugal’s most underrated regions on this full-day guided tour of Minho, from Porto. Located in Northern Portugal, Minho is known for its bucolic countryside, lush terrain, vineyards and delicious cuisine. Spend the day exploring it all with the help of a knowledgeable guide, including eating a memorable lunch at a local restaurant. Visit two cities, Guimaraes and Braga, to get to know the heart of the region.
What to Expect
Minho is a traditional province in the north of Portugal known for having some of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Portugal, for having a huge beauty and biodiversity, amazing beaches as well as being one of the richest regions in history. The Minho region is known by its traditional landscapes, full of small fields, vineyards, villages, manor-houses, hospitality, gastronomy and lots of traditional festivals.

Your day starts at 9am and the first region to visit is Guimaraes, known as the birthplace of Portugal and also the birth of the first Portuguese king. In the visit to Guimaraes you will spend some time in the historical city center, recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Experience the opportunity to see the Medieval Castle of Guimaraes, where the resident people believe that D Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, was born. Visit the S. Miguel church, the Oliveiras Square and have a panoramic view of the Santa Clara Convent. During the visit, you will observe that the streets and the monuments are so well-preserved that is so easy to imagine the past.

After visiting Guimaraes, the Tour goes to Braga, one of the oldest Christian cities in the world and one of the most important religious centers in Portugal. Braga is known by its several baroque churches, houses from the heighten century, gardens and thematic parks. Braga counts with more than two thousand years of history as a city. In Braga, enjoy a lunch in a typical restaurant and after that, visit the Cathedral and the historical center. Before making your way back to Porto, you will also see two important Sanctuaries, the Sameiro Sanctuary and the Bom Jesus do Monte.

The tour will end in Porto around 6:30pm.
