  • Good Museum, which could make better use of the space with more temporary exposções. Collection of pieces and library.

  • Has an interesting collection, but the visitation is not friendly. The pieces have no caption. The trick is to apply for loan at the reception a book of the Museum, with explanation of the works.

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.
