Guimaraes is called the cradle of Portugese history and it´s one of the prettiest cities of the nation.
It has a very unique historical center and it has the castle where the first king of Portugal (Alfonso henriques) was born.
There are several other sights in Guimaraes and i think it´s one of the biggest musts to visit when you are in Portugal.

Directions: Guimaraes is way up north in Portugal inbetween Porto and the border to Spain.
