Porto, Guimarães, Braga & Arouca
The County of Portucale
DAY 3: GUIMARÃES & BRAGA
Guimarães, which is considered the birthplace of Portugal because Afonso Henriques, who went on to be the first king of Portugal, was born here. The city still has a harmonious, well-preserved heritage that is evident in the graceful iron balconies, mansions, arches connecting the narrow streets, paving slabs smoothed by time, towers and cloisters.
