When, in 2001, UNESCO declared the historic center of Guimarães a world heritage site, it was nothing more than a basic act of justice.

Guinarães was the starting point for the founding of Portugal, and its historical relevance is still very present in its monuments and in the environment of that same historic centre.

Guimarães is a must visit, whether to see its highlights in one day, or to deeply feel the city in a longer stay.
