Braga and Guimarães are, like Oporto, young cities, with an interesting cultural offering, various restaurants, nightlife fun establishments and good hotels. In the case of Guimarães, a visit is also worth for its history and heritage, as the historic and medieval centre of the birthplace of Portugal is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city acted as a stage for the European Capital of Culture in 2012, an event that enriched its cultural dynamics. In addition to these two cities in the northwest of Portugal, it is worth visiting smaller towns such as Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castelo or Caminho, swimming at the fantastic beaches of the coast and tasting the Vinho Verde (Green Wine), a unique, aromatic and refreshing product. The Douro, the oldest demarcated region of the world, and the Port wine are closely linked to the city of Oporto. In the region, you will be impressed by the vineyards, a beautiful and absolutely charming natural landscape, cultural and architectural heritage of cities and towns of Douro - Vila Real, Amarante, Lamego, Pinhão -, and, of course, the wine and gastronomy. In Trás-os-Montes, make sure to visit cities such as Bragança, Chaves, Miranda do Douro and Mirandela.
