guimaraes

 

Guimarães is situated at 15 minutes from Quinta de Freixieiro, and can be reached by car, train, taxi or the inter-city bus.

This is one of the historical cities of our country, with its roots in the 9th century. This medieval town is known as the “Cradle City”, a living memory of the independence of Portugal. Guimarães played a decisive role in the birth of our country when, by the middle of the 9th century, it was chosen to be the political centre of the Portucalense County, and therefore responsible for the foundation of the identity of the Portuguese nationality.

The Historical Centre of Guimarães was classified as World Heritage in 2001 and in 2012 European Capital of Culture. A diversity of places of interest can be visited, from cultural places to night life and shopping.
