About the tour

The proud birthplace of Afonso Henriques, the first independent king of Portugal (born here in 1110, he later used the city to launch the main thrust of the Reconquista against the Moors), and, thus, the Portuguese kingdom, Guimarães has beautifully preserved its illustrious past. Its medieval centre is a warren of labyrinthine lanes and picturesque plazas framed by 14th-century edifices, while on an adjacent hill stands a 1000-year-old castle and the massive palace built by the first duke of Bragança in the 15th century. Guimarães’ glory was recognised in 2001, when Unesco declared its old centre a World Heritage Site. In 2012, the city was the European Capital of Culture, which has given it a more creative edge.

Discover the city of Guimarães with visits organized by Minho Free Walking Tours. Visits to the city center are held every day at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. according to previous reservation on GuruWalk. Look for the guides with the green umbrella. Our team is made up by local guides, interested and enthusiastic, who provide the visitor unique experiences and promote the history, culture, legends and traditions, as well as the gastronomy of their city. Our visits are free, however, at the end of the tour you can pay what you feel our work was worth.

Ni el guía ni el resto de los asistentes al tour usaron mascarilla ni respetaron las distancias de seguridad.

Además, el guía comenzó el tour con un chiste de muy mal gusto totalmente innecesario que no tenía nada que ver con la visita.

En general una mala actitud que estropeó la visita a una ciudad tan bonita.
