  • We go up by car because of bad weather, although you can also climb by cable car. It is a place with fantastic places but we had no luck with the weather. Cold, rain and fog. The Hermitage is OK but it's nothing spectacular. We hope to return some day with better time.

  • The Park Penha de Santa Catarina is an ideal excursion out of town, especially in the heat of summer. Is situated at seven kilometres from the Centre of Guimarães to a height of about six hundred meters within a mountain road in the midst of verdant forests. The area is part of a national ecological reserve, oasis of flora and fauna, the Park is a picnic spot among trees and boulders. You can also visit a shrine. Liked it.

  • Well worth the cold we have to be able to contemplate this natural balcony in the city of Guimarães. Advise the trip by cable car to take advantage of the different levels of view over the city. Oh, and kids love.

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.
