Introduction


On this half-day private walking tour you will discover Guimaraes most important monuments. Celebrated as the cradle of the Portuguese nation, Guimaraes played an important role in many of the events that led to the country┤s independence and witnessed the birth of Afonso Henriques I. When he proclaimed himself Portugal┤s first king in 1139, he chose Guimaraes as his capital, and the distinctive outline of its proud castle appears on the Portuguese coat of arms. First built to deter attacks by Moors and Normans in the 10th century, the city┤s famous castle dominates the skyline with eight square towers and a 27-metre-high dungeon. The Alberto Sampaio Museum located in a 12th-century chapter house in the centre of town contains a vestment of JoŃo I and a portable 14th-century altar.
