    A beautiful Museum with sacred art in different areas of painting, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics and textiles dating back to the 14th century, XV and XVI. Offers a unique piece of clothing used in the battle of Aljubarrota and other pieces of great importance. In addition to your content can still enjoy your cloister with perfect round arches. The visit to Sunday morning is free.

    The small cloister is a fantastic haven while the Largo da Oliveira is 2 steps. Museum, small but not that much, presents works of very high quality overall, the majority of religious art but forms varied and interesting. Also very important historical pieces of Portuguese history. All this in a great Museum that deserves perhaps more attention than the Palace or Castle... The shop is however quite poor, too bad.

    Given the price of fee and the small size of the place, I recommend to those who do not particularly appreciate religious art to try a short visit. No doubt will find they one or two pieces that will grab their attention. For lovers, on the other hand, the collections seemed excessively rich with coins that we like to admire more extensively for their originality and their beauty simply.

  • Nice amount of religious stuff to look at, but all got a little repetitive for me by the end.
  • Kind of expensive entry ticket. A lot of religious art. The cloister is very pretty
  • You really should visit this place...and go and grab stuff at the museum store.
  • 😊
  • I went on Sunday. Well-organized space. free entrance to thematic exhibitions and modern sacred art but mostly old not only

Where to stay in Guimaraes

As one of Portugal's biggest tourist cities and home to a wealth of historical buildings and other sites, Guimaraes boasts a wide array of options for accommodations ranging from extensive boutique hotels to basic youth hostels. To place yourself right in the midst of the action, check into a hotel or guesthouse in the town's medieval center, which reflects a multitude of different architectural styles that have earned it a place on the World Heritage List. Note, however, that with this popularity comes a higher pricetag. To keep costs down, try staying in the residential areas south of the center, which still provide quick access by foot or public transportation to the main sights.
