Other Places of interest

Porto
Just a 25 minute drive of the colourful city of Porto, the second largest in Portugal, adorned with medieval relics, tall bell towers and baroque churches, this fascinating city is well worth a day visit during your stay. The birthplace of port, Porto has been a long standing mecca for wine enthusiasts, with many wine caves open for tastings. The historic centre, a Unesco World Heritage Site attracts many, with locals mingling on village style plazas lined with old storefronts.

Guimaraes
Situated 30 minutes drive of Santo Tirso, Guimaraes was previously awarded the European Capital of Culture, and we can easily see why, it would be hard not to fall in love with this picturesque city! At the heart of the city you will find a web of pedestrianised winding cobbled streets and washing-hung alleyways adorned with tiny bars and quaint cafes, leading to charming squares where you can dine alfresco. Individual shops are dotted around, specialising in lacework, hats and birdcages, fascinating to explore, and for those looking for international shopping Guimaraes Shopping can be found just outside of the historic centre full of well known brands. As the first capital of Portugal and birthplace of the nation's first king, Guimaraes is one of the country's most historic cities, and its World Heritage medieval streets with well-preserved monuments make it one of the most attractive places to visit in Portugal. There is no better way to see this adorable city than by the 10 minute cable car journey that transports you from Guimaraes over its residents’ back gardens to the 2,000 foot high peak known as Penha.

Braga
The elegant city of Braga, is the third largest in Portugal, located around a 30 minute drive of Santo Tirso, and well worth spending a day or evening exploring. Laced with ancient narrow streets and interesting buildings, with an upscale old town, packed with lively cafes, trim boutiques, excellent restaurants and low-key bars. Home to a number of impressive Baroque monuments, including one of the country's best-known sights, the Bom Jesus Sanctuary.
