“A charming stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Guimarães is not to be missed. It's a beautiful historic site, with interesting museums of the Portuguese glorious past, and tasty regional food. I suggest you spend at least a full day around the area.

“Those old narrow streets...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

You wont miss these attractions because they are in the center and on your way from railway station to Paço de Bragança. Those paved narrow streets, pretty clean by the way, are a pleasure to walk. There are old buildings and churches that you would like to watch or to enter into. Nice small cafes around, with a glass of vinho do Porto, of course!..

“Beautiful”

This area was beautiful with lots of little shops and restaurants. Please try the pastry de guimaraes. My children loved this pastry that is filled with pumpkin.
