Make your way to Minho and explore the charming cities of Braga and Guimarães on a small group tour. Here, you can take a step back in time and wander through its historic streets, take in monuments such as the revered castle or palace, or savor refreshments at one of the gorgeous Portuguese squares.
Braga, once the capital of Galicia and a Roman city, experienced a variety of rulers before being reconquered by Christians in the mid-11th century. As Bishop Pedro brought back the archdiocese to Braga, it became the major religious reference point for centuries with its Se (cathedral) being Portugal’s oldest. This led to the saying “older than the Braga Se” which implies something is extremely old. Meanwhile Guimarães is an enchanting city in Portugal where its medieval and sixteenth-century central area has been classified as World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its association with D. Afonso Henriques who founded the kingdom of Portugal. Spend your night here at Porto!

Start your journey to the beautiful city of Coimbra where you will be guided by a local expert. This city has a long and fascinating history that dates back to when Dom Henrique and Dona Teresa were residing there. Moreover, it was in this region that the first king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques was born. Furthermore, Coimbra is known for being the setting where Dom Pedro I (1357-67) fell madly in love with Dona Inês. Unfortunately, their romance resulted in her execution because it threatened Portugal’s independence from Castile. Consequently, this story still resonates strongly throughout the city today; one of many stories associated with its heritage as it once served as Portugal’s capital during the Middle Ages.
The city of Coimbra underwent a transformation into a place of knowledge when Dom João III (1521-57) decided to make the University’s move there permanent. Alongside, numerous colleges were also established as an alternative form of teaching. During the 17th century, the Jesuits made their mark by constructing Sé Nova (New Cathedral). In the following century, royal work initiated by Dom João V (1706-50) was responsible for enriching some monuments in Coimbra, such as the University. Notable alterations to its educational system were introduced by Dom José I’s (1750-75) under guidance from his minister Marquês de Pombal.

As your journey progresses, an en-route stop at Tomar and Obidos is in store. Of the central Portuguese cities, Tomar is truly special with its quaint historical center and lovely riverside park boasting an array of birds like swans, herons, and ducks. Most remarkable though is the Convento de Cristo which earned it a spot on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The 850 year old foundation traces back to the legendary Knights Templar who were major players in Portugal from 12th-16th centuries – their wealth played a huge role in helping propel the Age of Discoveries.
Boasting a long and fascinating history, Óbidos is a medieval town located near Lisbon and overlooking Portugal’s Atlantic coastline. Strategically important since pre-Roman times, it was once gifted to Queen Isabel by King Dinis in 13th century. Delighted with her present, she proceeded to turn this small Portuguese settlement into an artistic masterpiece, commissioning numerous exquisite churches throughout its boundaries. Today, Óbidos stands as one of Portugal’s most picturesque and well preserved sites.
