Overview of the tour in Guimaraes

Guimarães is much more than a simple city. With a history of more than 1,000 years since the exceptional countess Mumadona Dias founded the town, Guimarães is today a kind of reunion with the medieval past of the Iberian Peninsula.

We begin the free tour at the Church of Our Lady of Consolation and Santos Pasos, designed by the famous baroque architect André Soares, where the famous Gualter Festivities are held in homage to San Gualter.

Next, we approach the city walls and begin our journey through the past of medieval times. We will cross areas full of history such as Largo do Toural and Praça de Santiago, and monuments such as the Padrão do Salado or the Church of Nossa Senhora da Oliveira. The visit ends on the way to the castle, where there are 3 of the most important monuments of the creation of Portugal: the Guimarães Castle, the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza, and the mystical Chapel of São Miguel.

Come and let yourself be carried away by the Romanesque portals, the medieval squares, and the centennial arches. Our guides, specialists in history, are full of secrets to share. Essential.
