Braga one of the oldest religious cities in the world, with its sanctuaries that constitute the faith triangle: Cathedral, Sanctuaries of Sameiro and Bom Jesus. You will visit Sé de Braga, the most important cathedral and monument of Braga, which dates back to the 12th century and Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuaries, Portuguese sanctuaries famous for its 116-metter stairway.

Discover Nossa senhora do Sameiro Santuary, a neo-classical monument built in the 19th century, which is a part of the most important shrines to Mary.

Enjoy a free time to lunch.

The tour continues with a visit to Guimaraes, at around 30 minutes from Braga. Guimaraes is considered the birthplace of Portugal and of her first king. Here, visit the medieval castle of Guimaraes, a national monument, which dates back to the 10th century. From the top of this castle, admire great views of the old city. Keep the discovery up at the historic center, where buildings from the 10th to 17th centuries are mixed.
