Guimar„es Things to Do: 106 reviews and 238 photos


This immense structure was built by the Duke of Braganca in the XV century. Entry costs about E3. You can see fine tapestries and medieval furniture, as well as wonder why this guy needed so many rooms... Ceilings are immensely tall, the tallest you are likely to see anywhere outside of cathedrals or stadiums. The chapelle is particularly nice; it has fine glass and marble pillars taken out of the Moorish palace in Ceuta.

Directions: right next to the castle

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
