About
The North of Portugal is green, but it is also history, tradition and modernity. Minho is the river that borders the north of the country, but also the land of a wine that only has a green name and that remains in the memory of those who drink it. To discover this region is to get involved in Guimarães - a World Heritage city since 2001 - with its symbolic castle and cradle of Portugal, it is to walk its streets and feel the history. It is visiting Braga with its Cathedral, feeling that the Romans also passed through there and being part of a modern city. It means going up to the Church of Bom Jesus and allowing yourself to be spiritually involved in its chapels and gardens. Minho is to feel the landscape, the history, the culture, the tradition and the Portuguese being.

Once again, Plainsight does not disappoint
Sep. 2020
Our visit to the historical sites in Braga, with its many churches and peculiar character, and Guimaraes, the literal birthplace of this fascinating country was filled with interesting stories, great food and delightful company.
