This city motto is "Portugal was born here" because according to the legend this is where was born the country’s first King, D. Afonso Henriques.
Guimarães is a small city in the north of Portugal but despite its size it presents so many historic places, landmarks of what is Portuguese history. The tour includes visiting the famous places, namely the Castle erected in the 10th Century, the Palace constructed in the 15th Century, Nossa Senhora da Oliveira Church, remodelled in the 14th century but actually founded in 949AD and so many others.
After visiting these amazing and dazzling places, we can seat and rest at Oliveira Square, a beautiful plaza surrounded by an eclectic mixture of buildings.
This tour wouldn't be completed without tasting portuguese cuisine that is so well-represented in this city.
Price includes transportation from hotel / Guimarães / hotel and a meal at one of the many restaurants (previously chosen from a selected list).

I live in Oporto but I used to live in Guimarães and other cities of the North of Portugal. I’m passionate about my country especially about the North. I propose to guide you through some of the most emblematic places in the North namely Oporto, the beaches in the North and also Guimarães (World Heritage). Let me show how people can fall in love, like I did, by this region of Portugal. What I propose is to see and embrace Portugal through my eyes. I’ve created 4 itineraries but I’d be more than welcome to create a tailor-made trip that suits better your expectations. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
