  • The convent and Church of São Francisco are outside the old town and famous for its eighteenth-century azulejos that adorn the choir. The beautiful gothic dome in the main Chapel. The Church was founded in the 15th century and, although it has undergone renovations in the decoration you notice even the Gothic parts in the structure. Beautiful cloister.

  • 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.
