  • Simple, spare, little Romanesque chapel where the first king of Portugal was baptized. Interesting for its historical value as well as its very pure decor.  more »
  • A place that has to visit because it prays the history that was baptized here the first king of Portugal. Small chapel but very pleasant to visit.  more »
  • To see it's nothing special, you'll spend little time. It's important for its history. Just behind the ducal palace.  more »

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.
