About Guimarães

Guimarães: Located in the district of Braga, the picturesque city of Guimarães is one of the most important historical destinations in the country. D. Afonso Henriques, the first Portuguese King, chose this city as Capital for the Kingdom of Portugal, after his victory in the Battle of São Mamede in 1128. Known as the “Nation Craddle”, Guimarães is a fascinating place to visit, with its proud castle and well preserved medieval district.

The city was classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2001.

This lovely historical city is a labyrinth of winding alleys, sided by antique houses decorated with statuary that lead to the beautiful main square, Largo da Oliveira,and to the former Ducal Palace. The best time to appreciate the medieval environment of Guimarães is from June onwards, with an important medieval style crafts market, an arts fair and a joyful parade of antique costumes - the Feira Afonsina. Yearly in Guimarães, since 1906, are celebrated the Festas Gualterianas, in honor of St. Gualter, always during the first weekend of August. Thousands of Vimaranenses (locals) and visitors set a date in the city where Portugal was born, to participate in the different numbers that constitute our Gualterianas: Cortejo do Linho (Linen Parade), Batalha das Flores (Flowers Battle), Marcha Gualteriana (Gualteriana March), among others.
