After the wine experience, we suggest a self-guided visit to Braga, considered the "Portuguese Rome", one of the oldest Christian cities in the world, with more than 2000 years of history. In a city extremely connected with religion, you will visit the historic center with its numerous monuments and points of interest such as the Cathedral, Igreja dos Congregados, Santa Bárbara Garden and Theatro Circo.

Check-in at Carmo’s Boutique Hotel. A romantic and surreal scenario, a true boutique hotel in the style of Salvador Dalí, as Arjan Mulder said. This hotel stands out for the recovery of tradition, history, sophistication, and respect for the Environment.

Day 3

Enjoy your last breakfast in the Vinho Verde region.

After checking out, we suggest a self-guided visit to the beautiful Guimarães historical center, considered World Heritage Site by UNESCO and European Culture Capital in 2012. Guimarães was the first capital of the Portuguese County, which gives the city one of the main roles in the history of Portugal. The historic center, the Guimarães Castle, the Paço dos Duques de Bragança and the São Miguel Chapel are a must-visit.

After the visit, we will take you to Quinta da Aveleda. The history of the Quinta da Aveleda estate is lost in time, but there are countless records of this estate after the 16th century. Aveleda is a name which spans several generations. The first records of the sale of bottled wine date back to 1870, with Manuel Pedro Guedes. Aside from its important architectural heritage, the Quinta da Aveleda estate is also appreciated for its parks and gardens, where rare species of trees flourish, some of which have been around for over two hundred years. Distinguished with the international Best of Wine Tourism award, in the "Architecture, Parks and Gardens” category. Currently, the Quinta da Aveleda is the largest Vinho Verde exporting company.
