Cathedral of Guarda
The cathedral boasts Gothic and Manueline architectural styles, with intricate stone carvings and a majestic bell tower. Built in the 16th century, it houses valuable religious artifacts and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
The Misericordia Church showcases exquisite Baroque architecture, adorned with ornate details and beautiful frescoes. With its tranquil interior and religious artworks, the church provides a serene atmosphere for worship and reflection.
The church is nestled in a charming square, where the pillory is surrounded by cobblestone streets and historic buildings.
Adjacent to the cathedral and somewhat hidden by it, there’s a statue of the second king of Portugal, Sancho I.
The intention is to celebrate the foundation of the city, through the granting of the charter in 1199.
This square offers a picturesque setting with its cobblestone pavement, traditional buildings, and outdoor cafés. It serves as a gathering place for locals and visitors alike, providing a pleasant atmosphere to relax, enjoy a meal, or simply admire the cathedral’s architectural beauty.
Solar de Alarcão
Built in 1686, the Solar de Alarcão is right in the center of Guarda, right next to the cathedral.
As with other historic buildings, it was adapted to tourism, and today it has three rooms with all the amenities, which can be rented through the common websites or directly at Solar de Alarcão.
