Hi everyone,

My husband and I, ages 69 and 71, are seriously considering moving to Portugal. I'm a writer and he is a psychotherapist. In 2016, we spent 2 weeks in Lisbon, with day trips, and fell in love with the people and culture. A friend who lives near Lisbon has recommended Guimaraes and Braga. Are any of you familiar with these two cities?

Hi, I have visited Guimarães and really liked it. It was the birthplace of the first king of Portugal and is home to the Dukes Palace which is worth a visit. The architectural style is a little different from Central and Southern Portugal as you can see in this photo. There is a cable car to the Penha park which is a hilltop park with lots of rocks and caves, great views and lots of place for picnics. The town itself had lots of nice cafes and restaurants and was small enough to walk everywhere.
