Costa Verde - Braga

Central Avenue in Braga, Green Coast, PortugalIf you’re looking for holidays with a slice of real Portugal, then the Costa Verde region of Braga is for you.

Today, the historical centre of Guimarães is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist attraction. If Guimarães is the heart of Portugal then the beautiful city of Braga is its soul. This ancient city was once the capital of the old Minho province and with the oldest cathedral in Portugal has long been a religious power house. The Green Coast is also home to vinho verde, a refreshing slightly sparkling wine named not after the Costa Verde, but the fact the grapes are picked while still green. There’s a good mix of Green Coast holiday rentals and hotels in Braga with cottages, apartments and villas for rent across the region in mountain hamlets, country villages and vibrant market towns like Barcelos.
