Portugal in June with kids

We are planning a ten day trip to Portugal in June with kids - 9 yo and 7 yo. We are tentatively looking at spending 3 nights in Lisbon, 1 night in Obidos, 2 nights in Porto and possibly trying to visit Santiago de Compostela for a night or two. This is will be our first international trip with kids. We are all early risers so we tend to get out early in the morning to see sites and take it easy afternoons / evenings. I would love recommendations on sites to see, things to do that would work well for kids. Thanks!

I would be sure to see Sintra and Coimbra plus some other monasteries. Sinatra is an easy day trip without car from Lisbon.
Never been to Santiago de compostella but my wife did and loved it.
We had a fab Michelin starred restaurant in Porto close to .. Da Foz called Pedro Lemmos (maybe just one m) great evening.
We are late risers but in June it doesn't count the days are the longest.

For your kids:

In Coimbra (you don´t mention if you will have a car, but if you do, this is a really nice visit for kids):

And Sintra: do not miss Convento dos Capuchos, I'm quite sure they will love it to:

and also "Quinta da Regaleira".

Porto: Livraria Lello, the bookstore that inspired J.K.Rowlling, if they like Harry Potter.

We won't have a car in Lisbon. We'll be picking it up when we leave Lisbon.

HelenaFatima those all look great! I would love any other ideas you might have.

WoinParis thank you for the restaurant rec.

Between Lisbon and Óbidos, you can stop at Torres Vedras and visit some windmills still working, like this one:

You don't need a car in Porto.
