FIND MINHO HOTELS »


MINHO - A typically elegant Minho street in Viana do Castelo Minho is considered by many to be the country's most beautiful province, known for its colorful festivals, baroque churches, well-preserved towns, and lush vegetation. It offers splendid opportunities for cultural sightseeing, with some of the country's most historic cities, including the country's first capital, Guimarães.

It is also home to one of the country's most beautiful cities, Barcelos Braga, and the pretty town of Viana do Castelo. Other smaller picturesque towns such as Ponte de Lima and Ponte da Barca are filled with centuries-old traditions worth experiencing, as is the famous market of Barcelos.

Also of note is one of the country's most fascinating archeological sites, Citânia de Briteiros, the last Celtic stronghold in Portugal.

On the whole, much of Minho is stunningly picturesque, ending with more captivating scenery at the Peneda-Gerês National Park to the east.

The best way to tour the region is by car, although public transportation connects all the major towns and villages.
