Braga – Guimarães

Born as Brácara Augusta in the 1st century BC, in honor of emperor Caesar Augustus, it still prevails today as on the main centres of Christanity in Europe, one of the oldest in the world. In Braga we can visit churches of the baroque style, which were built even before Christianity became the official religion of Rome.

You cannot leave without visiting the Sanctuary of Sameiro, Bom Jesus do Monte, the Falperra Church, and relax your eyes in the intoxicating green from which the city breathes. Stay, but let yourself go, as time is short in this huge and crowded space.

Being the oldest city in Portugal, Braga reveals an incomparable spirit of joviality, having been distinguished as the European Youth Capital 2012, a city where visitors like to walk, live, smile, and most importantly, a city to come back to, because history is made by each of us.

And here, history is centuries old, but renovation is made every day, on a belief which goes beyond religion and Christianity.

We continue the journey towards Guimarães, the cradle city of Portugal, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 2001. We look at the city from the castle, only to then scroll through history, following narrow streets which make us forget in what time we’re in.

When arriving at Santiago Plaza, take a deep breath and prepare to bring history with you, in the memories which will leave you wanting more, wanting to come back, and extend the centuries you lived here.

Finally, back to Porto, we invite you to a sensory journey across the country through aromas and flavours; premium olive oils from all different regions of Portugal, and lastly, a 10-year-old Port Wine, aged in oak casks.
Cheers; these are on us.
