  • The history of the Franciscan order in Guimarães dates back to 1217, in the reign of d. Afonso III when he arrived to the village Friar Walter, a missionary sent to Portugal to introduce this mendicant order in the country. After a first period very precarious, the Franciscans of Guimarães settled in 1271 in hostels located along the walls of the village, on which they built a convent. In these early days the friars entered often in conflict with the Collegiate Church of Guimarães, who tried to prevent the installation of the order in the village.

  • You're ecstatic about the architecture and interior decoration, details and more details, you have to have time not to lose details, The gold, I believe being in gold and they were of our Brazil, are impressive.

  • My husband and I visited many churches in our travels. This impressed us a lot. It is beautiful inside and out not draws attention. I think that San Francisco was so ... simple but wonderful on the outside inside (although the luxury of the Church do not drive with the Franciscan behavior). Go!
