And one of the most essential sights in the city is the Se Cathedral, which boasts Gothic and Romanesque elements. If you’d like to find out more about Viseu’s past then you’ll find interesting museums at Casa Almeida Moreira and Grao Vasco, which is a 16th Century Episcopal Palace.

Elsewhere there’s the keep of Gaurda castle, which sits atop a hill above the city and dates to the 1100s.

Very Relaxing

5 of 5
A wonderful relaxing holiday. The scenery from the villa is stunning. Great pool and gardens with fresh grapes & oranges. We ventured over the bridge a few times which is quite daring but you get used to it after the first time! Went to the wine and tapas restaurant by the station which was very quaint & lovely food. Highly recommended for a lovely chill out.
