Portugal
10/05/2020

Next Spring (10 - 15 May 2020) members will be able to join a five night tour of North Portugal.

Based initially in Oporto, Portugal's northern capital, one of Europe's outstanding urban landscapes with a 2,000 year history, and a long-standing relationship with Britain, especially through the Port industry, and then we will be staying in Guimaraes, a World Heritage Centre and regarded as the birthplace of Portugal, reflected in a wealth of national monuments and historic buildings. We will visit other cities and sites, such as Braga, with its maze of narrow streets and Gothic churches, palaces, museums and gardens, and Viena de Castelo, offering amazing architectural interest and with wonderful works of art.  And a boat trip on the Douro river!

We would like more participants on tour to Northern Portugal, please
