Guimarães
It is considered the birthplace of Portugal since it was here that Afonso Henriques, who would become the first king of Portugal, was born. Associated with the formation and identity of Portugal, the historic centre of Guimarães was classified as a World Heritage by UNESCO based on the values of originality and authenticity with which it was recovered.

The city has a set of preserved heritage that can make us imagine that we’re in an authentic medieval setting. After arriving in Guimarães, we will visit the famous Palácio dos Duques built in the 15th century by D. Afonso (1st Duke of Bragança) for himself and his mistress so they could have a luxurious residence to visit each other.

We will stroll through the Castle of Guimarães known as the cradle of the Portuguese nationality. Located in a dominant position in the Campo de São Mamede cork oak, the Castle of Guimarães is connected to the foundation of the county of Porto and the struggles of the Portuguese Independence, being considered one of the seven wonders of Portugal. Later we will visit its gardens and the place known as the Sacred Hill. We’ll also discover the Igreja de São Miguel, the modest temple in which Afonso Henriques received his baptism. The baptismal font can still be seen in its interior.

Finally we will visit the historical centre of Guimarães, distinguished by UNESCO as World Heritage, due to the reminiscences preserved in its patrimony and in its public spaces.
