“Older than Braga Cathedral” – a portuguese expression used to denote something very, very ancient. In fact visiting Braga is a tour into different periods of history. Since its foundation by the Romans, who named it Bracara Augusta, through its medieval and baroque eras, Braga is an amazing city. In 2012, Braga received the title of European Youth Capital, due to the presence of the headquarters and campus of University of Minho, and its tradition of high education. The Sanctuary of Bom Jesus de Braga reveals an astonishing view of the city, from its 400m above sea level and some pleasant moments in the beautiful gardens and lakes.
Guimarães has its origins in the X century with the construction of a defensive tower, ordered by countess Mumadona Dias. During the XII century D. Afonso Henriques, son of the city earls, was recognized as Portugal first king. Visit Guimarães is to travel back in to the origins of the country, found on each corner, square and building.
