I must say that Guimarães is one of my favourite cities in Portugal. Since 2012, the year in which it was the European Capital of Culture, there is a boost of cultural events such as exhibitions, concerts, performances and so on. Guimarães is considered to be the birthplace of Portugal and the Historic Centre is an UNESCO site. Many reasons to visit this city located in North of Portugal, close to Porto. Of course, let’s not forget the gastronomy like the Guimarães pies, which is a caloric bomb.
