  • Valley by the symbolism of being the Church where Dom Afonso Henriques was baptized. Is that it. Nothing more.

  • Very well preserved, has great symbolism for your historic connection to the Foundation of nationality. Was it about her that was named after d. Afonso Henriques. It is a national monument.

  • According to tradition, was baptized Dom Afonso Henriques, King of Portugal. In your interior a few things: 1-weight measurement system and capabilities, 2-Royal Inscription 1654 (letter that Don João IV sent to Guimarães determining compliance with the vote of the King and the Kingdom to the Virgin Mary Immaculate da Conceição-patroness of Portugal), 3-two sculptures (Saint Michael and the Virgin Mary), 4-and 5-Font Gravestones with warriors and religious reasons. Between the Guimarães Castle and Paço dos Duques.

  • Nice place to walkaround
  • Small church
  • ok
  • A landmark of Portugal history
  • Ao visitar esta pequena igreja e compreender sua idade e o grau de preservação fiquei impressionado com o orgulho e respeito do povo português para com sua história. Aqui é o local onde teria sido batizado o primeiro rei de Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques. Aos fãs de história, é visita obrigatória.
