Guimaraes — 1 night

The historical town of Guimarães was the birthplace of the first Portuguese king and served as the country's first capital.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): explore the historical opulence of Guimaraes Castle, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja de Sao Miguel do Castelo, step into the grandiose world of Paco dos Duques de Braganca, then don't miss a visit to Praca de S. Tiago, then get engrossed in the history at Alberto Sampaio Museum, and finally don't miss a visit to Santuario da Penha. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at Se de Braga, then snap pictures at Ponte Romana e Medieval, then make a trip to Largo de Camoes, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Sameiro Sanctuary.
