In Portugal we have lots of tourist places to visit. Three of them are “Mosteiro dos Jerónimos”, “Torre de Belém” and “Centro Histórico de Guimarães”.
Mosteiro dos Jerónimos is in Lisbon. The place is beautiful inside and out. In one of the rooms has a timeline that compares the history of the place, with events in the world and Portugal. The entry costs 10 euros. But there exist a lot to visit in this monument. You can see more information here and here.
Torre de Belém is also in Lisbon. The tower is beautiful and is very close to the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and from another monument called “Monumento dos Descobrimentos”. Worth making the visit of all points in the same morning. You can see more information here and here.
Centro Histórico de Guimarães is located in Guimarães (North of Portugal) where Portugal was born, according to history, although there are also other opinions about the location where Portugal was born.
The birthplace of Portugal’s fascinating. Beautiful, historic, medieval. All very well maintained. Do not forget to visit the castle. There is also a small church where D. Afonso Henriques, king of Portugal at that time, was baptized.
Guimarães tells me a lot because I teach there in 2005/2006 during the school year and visited and drink coffe a lot Centro Histórico de Guimarães. Beautiful place to visit.
