People say that the best way to truly get to know a place is through gastronomy. So, why not get to know the highlights of Guimarães, while delighting yourself with the wonderful typical dishes of the region?
Guimarães is the birthplace of Portugal and is located in the north of the country. It was here that D. Afonso Henriques (the first king of Portugal) founded the nation, becoming a symbol of the city. The historic centre of Guimarães is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001.
