Historic Guimaraes

Historic Guimaraes

Visit the beautiful historic city where the country of Portugal was born.

Depart the pier by motorcoach for the one-hour journey to Guimaraes-cradle of the nation. The first capital of Portugal has a wealth of magnificent buildings and history to discover.
Visit the medieval King's Castle and Palace of the Dukes of Braganca (15th century) which houses a museum and art gallery with portraits, tapestries, fine furniture and porcelain. A walking tour through the old city reveals quiet corners and narrow streets, a former manor house situated in the square and a 10th-century church dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Free time is allowed for you to browse the local shops for treasures or relax in the square. Before you return to the coach to drive back to the port of Leixões, see the Customs Tower emblazoned with the slogan 'Portugal was born here'.
