In Guimarães, Praça Sao Tiago, don't miss the restaurant AMU-TE. Very friendly and warm service. We enjoyed something similar to a Spanish paella which was absolutely excellent. Thanks to the staffs and the chef for that perfect diner

Great place to relax and have a coffee or some lunch and watch the world pass by. Fortunately we also stayed in this square enjoyed the proximity to all of the old town.

Nice area with tables to sit out and have something to eat or drink. That is if it is not raining as it was the day we visited! Lovely tiled buildings surround it.

We walked the maze of tiny streets to the old medieval city center. It was a wonderful experience, even in the pouring rain. Loved the experience, wandering the ancient town, with it's current inhabitants - yes, we pretended it was in ancient times...

Praca de Santo Tiago is located in the historical centre of Guimaeres Portugal and is a fine example of making much out of little. A very small triangular square but surrounded by shops and restaurants and history, you dont have to go far to experience...More

A nice little praca like all the old town center. Great for a walk, or to eat or drink something and relax.

I noticed the numbering on the houses or shops has a very unique system. The buildings along the alley you pass by are very quint. You will see small cafes, bar, pizza place or antique shops which are ver narrow. The whole experience being there...More

We were lucky enough to pass through the Place before the cafes & restaurants set up and spoilt the photogenic views.

Enjoyed many evening strolls around the historical center. When you stay in the town you get a much better flavour of the old town in the night lights

The place has been perfectly restored ans is touristy yet you get the feel that people actually live here: laundry hanging from some windows, little old ladies coming from the market, etc. make it a very pleasant experience.

Thank Bernard B
