Alto Douro

Hubert Austria - 25-Aug-18

Alto Douro

Vineyards are not the most popular type of WHS among the community of this website. One reason is certainly that they belong to an over-represented category. Our vineyards connection comprises a total of 32 WHS, almost half of which are devoted exclusively or predominantly to viniculture. On the other hand, viniculture is one of the oldest and most traditional agricultural technique. And vineyards are often picturesque landscapes, especially if they are along a winding river. And these qualities are given in the Douro Valley.Alto Douro is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world with a protected designation of origin

Historic Centre of Guimarães and Couros Zone (extension) (T)

Hubert Austria - 21-Jul-18

Historic Centre of Guimarães and Couros Zone (extension) (T)

The former tannery quarter of Guimarães, the Zona de Couros, has been listed on the T-list as an extension of the existing WHS in 2017. In the tourist map of Guimarães, the Couros zone is marked as a small area south of the historic centre. Several tanning basins have been preserved (photo) and some of the historic factory buildings have been renovated and are reused for offices or similar purposes. Other buildings are still waiting for renovation. But much of the area is not accessible to visitors and there is no information or explanatory boards on the significance of the site. Moreover, I have doubts that this Couros zone would contribute to the outstanding value of the WHS Guimarães

Guimarães

Hubert Austria - 21-Jul-18

Guimarães

For today's visitors, it is not immediately apparent that Guimarães played such a significant role in Portuguese history, it is closely related to the foundation of the Portugal and is often referred to as the "cradle of the nation". The Castelo de Guimarães is said to be the birthplace of the first king of Portugal, Alfonso Henriques. Thus it's a good idea to refresh your knowledge about the origins of the Portuguese nation prior to the visit. If not, you can learn the most important facts in the small exhibition at the Castelo. They show also a copy of the Manifestis Probatum, the papal bull in which Pope Alexander III recognized the Portuguese king and confirmed the independence of Portugal from the Kingdom of Castile.

Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte in Braga

Hubert Austria - 17-Jul-18

Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte in Braga

The Sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte is a pilgrimage site, only about 25 kilometres north of Guimarães. The pilgrimage church is located on the eastern outskirts on a hill overlooking the city of Braga. In the 14th century, the first chapel was built in that place. The construction of the ensemble in its present form, with the Baroque staircase and the pilgrimage church, was started in the 18th century and completed in 1811.

Having already visited several monasteries, churches and cathedrals on my trip to Portugal, I was not very keen on visiting yet another religious site. But Bom de Jesus is scheduled for decision at the WHC session in 2019, thus it was no question that I made the short detour via Braga on my way from Oporto to Guimarães. There are three options to get to the pilgrimage church. The classical way is to climb the imposing Baroque staircase. Second, with the historic funicular. And third, by car or bus straight to the top of the hill. Of course, I chose the classical way, well not really the classical way, that would mean climbing the stairs on hands and knees. For my way down, I took the funicular

Oporto

Hubert Austria - 11-Jul-18

Oporto

The historic centre of Oporto is located along the hillside of the northern bank of the Douro River, just a few kilometres from the Atlantic coast. In guidebooks, the historic centre is often subdivided into an upper town with the cathedral at the highest point and a lower town, the Ribeira quarter. But that’s only half the truth. Actually, Oporto is an up-and-down-up-and-down city, a proper visit of the core zone can be an exhausting exercise.In May 2018, I spent two and a half days and three nights in Oporto. I had accommodation in Vila Nova de Gaia, just two hundred metres from the Ponte Dom Luis I. So I had several times the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful view of the old town from the top level of the bridge or from the opposite bank of the Douro
