Medieval town and Unesco World Heritage


According to Unesco, "The historic town of Guimarães is associated with the emergence of the Portuguese national identity in the 12th century. An exceptionally well-preserved and authentic example of the evolution of a medieval settlement into a modern town, its rich building typology exemplifies the specific development of Portuguese architecture from the 15th to 19th century through the consistent use of traditional building materials and techniques. "

Guimarães Castle has been recognized by the "Tourism-Review" magazine one of the 10 best castles in Europe. Don't miss the chance to visit it!
** If you arrive to Oporto by boat, it is also possible to provide transportation, from Oporto harbour, according an extra fee.
