This square is probably the quintessence of Guimaraes! Beautiful church whose bells sound like music, the old Padrao de Salado, little restaurants to relax, great place to be!

Nice cozy square in the middle of the historic centre, right in front of the church of Nossa Senhora Da Oliveira. Explore the little winding streets leading into the square and the nearby church. Lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from.

Nice, medieval square with beautiful buildings and churches. Despite of its name, there is only one unfortunate olive tree on the square. :)

Only had a few hours in Guimares but the square is very special. Not quite sure about the cafes/restaurants covering such a high proportion of it though. Building mix is spectacular and the smaller cafes are perhaps to be preferred, specially the local cakes.

Hang out here. Get something to drink before choosing another destination. Get lunch. Get dinner. Look, if I have to write 100 characters, I am not going to review these individual sites!

Yes. Going around the whole town is free. We just had to pay a few euros at the private car parking to park our car.
