Mooring 2:00 pm Excursion to Guimarães.

Discover Guimarães, the former medieval capital of Portugal, rich in history and magnificent buildings, The historical centre in the area that was within the Guimarães city walls is associated with the formation and identity of Portugal. The city still has a harmonious, well-preserved heritage that is evident in the graceful iron verandas, granite balconies and porticos, mansions, arches connecting the narrow streets, paving slabs smoothed by time, towers and cloisters. For a moment, you might imagine yourself to be in a mediaeval setting, where the nobility built their houses over time, such as the Mota Prego house, the Vila Flor and Toural palaces, and the many others that give Guimarães its unique atmosphere. Considered a “must visit” city by The New York Times for 2012. Travel through time as you visit the 15th century Dukes Palace, which houses a museum and art gallery with portraits, tapestries, fine furniture and porcelain. Walk towards the town’s centre, UNESCO heritage, to discover its quiet corners, narrow streets, a former manor house and a 10th-century church situated in the main square. There will be free time to browse around and discover more about this marvellous town. On your way back to the coach, take a glimpse at the castle’s tower bearing the inscription: “Portugal was born here”.
