Centro Histórico de Guimarães
Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the historic center of Guimarães is a clear example of the preservation of a medieval urban core, in what is now a modern city. Intrinsically linked to the emergence of nationality in the twelfth century, the city is formed by a diverse set of buildings. In the center, you can easily see the bourgeois and noble houses from the 15th to the 19th century and the urban houses with smooth facades built during the 17th and 18th centuries. Of special beauty are the 19th century houses with a Pombaline style and houses covered in tiles, dating from the 19th and 20th centuries.
