Discover the "Cradle of Portugal" and see some of the country's major cultural highlights during this guided day tour to Guimaraes and Braga. We will pick you up from your hotel or accommodation in Porto or Vila Nova de Gaia and drive you to Guimaraes. Upon reaching there, see the medieval Castle of Guimaraes, the birthplace of Portugal's first king.

Also see the Chapel of Saint Michael where he was baptized, and discover the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza. Continue to the Church of Our Lady of Consolation (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira) and the Holy Steps. Then, head out to the favourite meeting point of the locals, Praca da Oliveira. Marvel at the UNESCO-listed monuments in the historic centre of the city, including the beautiful town hall.

Venture down one of the oldest streets of Guimaraes, Rua de Santa Maria, and contemplate the grandeur of the Convent of Santa Clara before pausing to soak up the city's youthful vibe in Praca de Santiago. Continue to the old city of Braga in the afternoon. Visit Praca da Republica and admire the unique facade of Igreja dos Congregados. Discover the House of Riddles and the famous Cafe A Brasileira. Travel to the fortified tower of Torre de Menagem and see the 18th-century Largo do Paco fountain. Admire the cathedral that survived many earthquakes to emerge as one of Portugal's most important monuments.

Travel to Monte do Bom Jesus, which is located six kilometres away from the city center, and see the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus de Braga, one of the most famous religious sanctuaries in Portugal. Leave Braga as the sun begins to set and head for Porto, where we will drop you off at your hotel or accommodation.
