Experience a relaxed and fun way to visit the city and surroundings of Guimarães! On this tour you will get back on the 60's aboard the iconic VolksWagen Combi Van.
If you visit Guimarães, you will certainly notice the high mountain adjacent to the city and visible from all points of the medieval city. This is in fact the highest peak at about 40km, and from where we can observe the limits of the entire city, the neighboring municipality of Braga, and even the Atlantic Ocean line.
Our proposal is a guided tour to the most special attractions of the the city and mountain. After get an overview of the castle, medieval streets and historical squares of the city, we will climb about 12 km in the VW Combi, to be dazzled by the magnificent views from two different points. We will learn about the history of the intervention and requalification of the whole area in the 20th century, and also understand the inherent religiosity, displayed by the pilgrimage Sanctuary of Penha.
Then we will take a break on a beautiful sightseeing spot, to taste the region's nectar accompanied by the typical conventual sweet "Torta de Guimarães".
The return to the center will be done on a different route (or you can also use the cable car) with more observation points, where without a doubt you will take the best photos of the visit!
