Minho has become a very popular destination with avid travellers over the years due to its vibrant assortment of insightful attractions. If you wish to delve into the comprehensive food scene found within this region, Flor de Minho is an ideal establishment to visit. This restaurant is considered to be a fan favourite with both tourists and locals because of its fresh cuisine and amicable atmosphere. A majority of the food is prepared over a high-end grill, meaning that guests can indulge in dishes such as expertly charred turkey steaks and pork tenderloin served with homemade French Fries. Flor de Minho can be found just 40 minutes away and welcomes guests Monday-Saturday from 7:30 am to 10 pm.
The Palace of the Dukes of Braganza is one of the region’s most significant tourist attractions and is situated just over half an hour away. This expansive palace was modelled after the typical 15th-century manor houses found throughout France during this time. As such, this building is incredibly decadent and has to be seen to be believed. However, it was not always this way. After the Dukes of Braganza moved to the Palace of Vila Vicosa, the building fell into disarray and was essentially left to rot. In the 1930s, the palace was finally restored, helping to create the amazing landmark we see today. Guests can travel inside the palace and marvel at the wide collection of pristine artefacts that are scattered around the attraction.
If you want to discover more about the incredible wildlife that can be found throughout this region, The Peneda Geres National Park is an ideal attraction to visit. This amazing park is made up of a collection of 22 rural villages, helping guests to observe the vibrant culture and biodiversity that has helped put Minho on the map. Here, guests can gain a clear view of a collection of rare species like cachena cows, goats, and autochthonous sheep. There is also a vast collection of historical monuments on-site such as the Castle of Castro Laboreiro and The Roman Road. As such, this is a great attraction to visit if you are looking to blend the wonders of history with the beauty of nature. The Peneda Geres National Park is located just under an hour away.

The areas of Minho extend from the Spanish border in the north, south to Porto and east to the mountains of Vila Real. It is a green and fertile area of rolling hills encompassing the great rivers Minho, Lima and Douro, and the National Park of Peneda Geres. The countryside of the region is typified by long, sandy beaches bordered by pine woods, picturesque villages nestling among vine-covered hills, and historic towns such as Amarante, Guimaraes, Barcelos, Ponte de Lima, and Viana do Castelo.

The area encompasses a range of postcard-worthy landscapes and features that could almost be Portugal in microcosm: dreamy river scenes, high mountains, rolling vineyards, beautiful historic towns, dramatic Atlantic beaches, ancient religious foundations and mysterious archaeological sites.

Then there's the bold, sharp and fruity Vinho Verde to consider. This young wine is fashioned from the fruit of kilometres of vineyards that wind along rivers, over foothills and into Minho mountain villages.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Minho, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Minho is also commended for its wide selection of fascinating and alluring attractions, making it an ideal location to visit if you are travelling with curious children. This region is also celebrated for its plethora of impeccable beaches, such as Praia do Cabedelo, which is based just under an hour away. This flawless landmark is teeming with soft, warm sand and an abundance of sapphire-blue water. Because of these amazing features, it is an ideal spot for a wide variety of watersports. As such, guests can enjoy either marvel at the awe-inspiring views or they can choose to embark on a truly exhilarating and thrilling adventure.
Guiamaraes Castle is a deeply informative and historic landmark, making it a perfect monument to visit if you are a lover of European history. This grandiose castle is regarded as the birthplace of the great Alfonso Henriques, better known as the first King of Portugal. In turn, this monument was home to many ferocious battles, all of which can be better understood throughout your in-depth guided tour. During your exploration of this castle, you will also observe a series of well-preserved artefacts, shedding more light on this region’s royal history and legacy. Once you reach the top of the castle, you will be greeted by a collection of amazing panoramic views. Guiamaraes Castle is situated just over half an hour away from the centre of Minho.
Another significant tourist attraction within Minho is The Gil Eannes Hospital Ship. This incredible attraction was constructed in 1955 and was originally used as a premium medical facility for the Portuguese cod fishing fleets who were known to travel throughout Newfoundland and Greenland. Despite its long history as a hospital, the ship was transformed into the Museological Unit and Sea Centre. As a result, guests can meander throughout the ship at their own pace, observing the wide variety of artefacts and specialist equipment. Thus, this is a truly inviting attraction that helps guests to better understand the naval legacy of this quaint region. The Gil Eannes Hospital Ship is located just 45 minutes away and is open Monday-Sunday from 10 am to 6:30 pm.
