Guimarães, the birthplace of Portugal

Ancient city whose history is closely linked to national history and identity. Distinguished by its unique heritage and exemplarily recovered, the Historic Center was recognized by UNESCO, in 2001, as a World Heritage Site.
The appreciation of culture and sporting events fostered the creation of a network of cultural and sporting equipment, which placed Guimarães in a prominent place on arts and shows, at national and international level, culminating in 2012 as European Capital of Culture in 2012 and 2013, as the European City of Sport. All these attributes make Guimarães an attractive city to visit.
