Lack of informations, badly design exhibition, degraded with elements missing, bad lightning... it has the minimum of information and signage elements. Less than this would be an abandoned building. Staff with no sympathy at all. They charge you a ticket to let you in and...More

Beautiful old castle with very tasteful wooden staircases that compliment the natural, mossy walls. There would be great views 9n a clear day too. Highlight of the trip so far.

The most important historical site in Portugal. The symbol of a nation. It's true that parts of the interior are in ruins very much due to the neglect during the 70s, 80s and 90s. However, this is where it all happened.

Really appreciated the Birthplace of Portugal...castle from 1049. Amazing that so much is intact; the surrounding town is also worth wandering

The castle is on hill above the city. It is a simple but powerful fortification. We enjoyed the tour and the info we got in the central tower.

One of the most famous sights of Guimaraes. To go inside requires a ticket which is not expensive, but there is also nothing inside to be seen. From outside it has a great view.

Worth a visit especially for the history exhibit in the castle. Wish we had time to visit the palace on the grounds also. Heard it is beautiful.
