  • Having walked through Largo da Oliveira & Praca San Tiago we reached Rua de Santa Maria which in turn led us to Largo Cónego & Câmara Municipal de Guimarães. The road is interesting in both directions...  more »
  • The Rua de Santa Maria, the access to the sacred hill and the historic, UNESCO as Cultural heritage of mankind. She also integrates this architectural ensemble of medieval origin. Place to visit, or the access to other places of great interest, both for the beauty of the flower bedecked balconies and exquisite detail.

  • Good place to visit, especially for those who like sweet. On this street there are some confectioneries that are typical sweets of the area. Try the tocinho of heaven and the pie of Guimarães.

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.
