About
In this tour we take you to make a cultural journey through two of the most beautiful cities in the country. In order to know the history of Portugal we have to go to its roots and that means to go head north of Porto to Guimarães, the nation's birthplace, and Braga, a city founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years.
