Description of the tour

Guimarães, the birthplace of the nation Visiting Guimarães is embracing the national identity, just as its walls embrace the city’s historic centre, full of charm and history. Portugal was born here! And this simple phrase is enough to immediately feel the weight of the city’s glorious historical past, which rebelled against Spain and ultimately became the birthplace of a nation of explorers who showed “new worlds to the world”.

Guimarães is a city that fills up the soul. With its old and colourful houses, resembling story book illustrations, where the light reflects and illuminates even the narrowest streets, the city is worth a visit. Here you’ll find the emblematic Guimarães Castle, where D. Afonso Henriques – the first King of Portugal – grew up, the Palace of the Dukes of Bragança and its museum, the medieval duo of the popular squares of Largo da Oliveira and Praça de Santiago and the aforementioned picturesque houses of Rua de Santa Maria.

Classified by UNESCO as Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the city’s historic centre dazzles with its alleys and medieval-style buildings, protected by what still remains of its walls. Still in the heart of the historic center of Guimarães, you’ll have the opportunity to visit one of the oldest Catholic churches in Portugal – the Church of Nossa Senhora da Oliveira – which dates back to the 20th century and therefore predates the formation of the kingdom. The birthplace of the nation and the city where Portugal was born is, without a doubt, a tour with a strong historical nature. Ideal for history lovers, but also for lovers of stories.
