Nice square to have a beer at night, a coffee daytime, check out the flea market Saturdays or partake in other activities that occur in the middle of the historic centre of Guimarães.

Lots of lovely squares to walk through and plenty of historical interest - or just sit and have a drink and watch the world go by.

This is a square for people watching and to chill for a meal or simply to have a drink. There is a square tower and an arch which makes it pretty and special.

We parked for free outside the old city and walked inside the walls. Inside it would be hard to find parking, it is free, but it is all taken. We had people guiding us all along...the people are kind. It was very hot in August,...More

Our walking tour of Guimaraes terminated in this square. It is a beautiful mediaeval square and there are some very interesting buildings.
