Guimarães

capa_GUIMARAES PT-6.jpg

Founded in the 5th century, the city of Guimarães played a crucial role in the development of Portugal as a country. It was here that D. Henrique established the Condado Portucalense, and it was also here, in this little corner, that D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, was probably born. In 1128, Guimarães became the "Cradle City of Portugal" after D. Afonso Henriques emerged victorious in the Battle of São Mamede.
