Guimarães Things to Do: 106 reviews and 238 photos


This street was named after a noble who fought alongside Dom Afonso Enrique. It contains a lot of fine buildings in the traditional Northern Portuguese style. The small two story home on the second photo was restored by the city, and this had launched the restoration of the entire city center, the fruits of which you may enjoy today.

Directions: city center

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
