Hey dear travellers,

Do you want to visit the city known as the ‘’heart’’ of Portugal? Where Portugal was born!

Guimarães is the place where the first Portuguese king, D. Afonso Henriques, was born and also where he started the conquer of our great country!! We’ll show you the historical center of the city where we can visit two very important monuments, Castelo de Guimarães (castle) and Paço dos Duques (palace). The Historic Center of Guimarães is classified World Heritage by UNESCO since 2001 and it’s a mandatory place to visit in Portugal! Last but not least, we’ll travel by cable car until Serra da Penha where we’ll enjoy a great view through the city until the ocean!
