Stones With History

Minho is a land of secular fortified villages, dolmens, fortresses, temples and castles – they are stones that hold chapters of a tale thousands of years old, and discovering the history of Minho is uncovering one of the volume’s of Portugal’s past.


Exploring royal, episcopal or noble palaces to discover the eras that marked other lives is the magic of travelling in time and getting to know sacred, cultural, archaeological, military and civil spaces, with distinct styles and an architecture all their own.


The landscapes and stones that built Minho are live witnesses of a past made of discovery, battles and conquests, of experiences and progress.


Confirm that historical, cultural and patrimonial roots are not buried, but imposing and for all to see.


They are the treasures of a past that continue to make Minho proud.
