Using the longest way, we head to our first medieval and typically Portuguese destination. The city of Obidos, whose cobblestones street and fortifications have remained authentic, is in a remarkable state of conservation. Let’s spend the rest of the day, like people lived in the middle ages.
Before reaching the little Portuguese Venice with its gondolas, we will have a stop at one of the oldest universities in Europe Founded at the end of the 13th century, it still welcomes students to this day and has a sumptuous baroque library.
We leave city life and driving to the north to one of the most beautiful castles in Portugal. It is called Guimarães castle and is looking like it was built only 100 years ago, as it is well preserved. Dom Henrique, future king of Portugal was born here in 1394. We end the day near the Gerês National Park.
Known for being the first wine area in Portugal, the Douro Valley has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 2001. Some call it "the enchanting" so its beauty is amazing.

We leave the mountainous area and head to the Aletenjo which has the most beautiful villages in the Portugal. Built on hillsides, on promontories and in the heart of fortress, they commonly dominate the surroundings. It’s in one of them we will spend the rest of the day and have accommodation.
