Know More about this tour

Walk through the streets of thehistoric district in Guimaresand visit the main attractions and monuments of the city such as Palace of the Dukes, the Guimares Castle, S. Miguel Chapel and the historic center of Guimares.

Guimares lies in the verdant Minho countryside to the north of Porto. Although essentially a medieval city, its origins go back to the 10th Century, when Countess Mumadona Dias founded a monastery that became the center of a new settlement.

To help its defence, she ordered a castle to be built on the nearby hill, thereby creating a second development. A narrow avenue called the Rua de Santa Maria linked these two villages and still exists today.
