Portugal was born here…
Walking through the streets of the historic center of Guimarães is like being in an open-air museum.
Situated in the north, Guimarães is one of the most important cities in Portugal. It is considered the “cradle of the nation”, as it is the place where some of the main events that led to the independence and creation of our country took place.
Its extensive history is reflected in the variety of national monuments and historic buildings found in the city.
