  • Beautiful central square of the historical city of Guimarães. Surrounded by old colorful buildings. You must try the sweets on the old fashioned patisseries. At the end of the square you can find the historic wall where you can read "Aqui nasceu Portugal" = "Portugal was born here".
  • Guimaraes is the city where Portugal was born. It has all the best of the north region of Portugal and is super pitoresc and beautifull! Food is great as well as the surroundings!
  • It's a nice plaza, and right at the centre of the city
  • Guimaraes is charming and this place is part of the historic charm of the city.
  • Large open plaza. A bit plain but you can't avoid walking thru it.

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.
