We found this square by chance, while wandering around the town streets. It is absolutely lovely, a real gem of a place. It is not very large, but that is not a problem at all. It is full of history. This is a central point...More

In Guimarães, Praça Sao Tiago, don't miss the restaurant AMU-TE. Very friendly and warm service. We enjoyed something similar to a Spanish paella which was absolutely excellent. Thanks to the staffs and the chef for that perfect diner

Great place to relax and have a coffee or some lunch and watch the world pass by. Fortunately we also stayed in this square enjoyed the proximity to all of the old town.

Nice area with tables to sit out and have something to eat or drink. That is if it is not raining as it was the day we visited! Lovely tiled buildings surround it.

I noticed the numbering on the houses or shops has a very unique system. The buildings along the alley you pass by are very quint. You will see small cafes, bar, pizza place or antique shops which are ver narrow. The whole experience being there...More
