What you will see?

Guimarães, a millennial town, has a rich and varied History. Popularly named as the “City with a cathedral without a bishop, with a Palace without a king, and with a bridge without a river”, it is a place with multiple faces.

In the zeal of each of its people, you will find an historian and genealogist. Be it legend or true, they could tell you its stories, from a king that beat his mother, the birthplace of a King and Pope, a knee yanked from a Saint, a deadly archway.

Is there a way to understand Guimarães? There is, but it is almost impossible to tell you, by words, a way to understand Guimarães. From its historical city center, passing by the industrial areas, passing to the football club Vitória Sport Club and ending in its people, streets and alleys, you must feel, smell and taste its peculiar way of life.
