Has estado alguna vez en Castillo Guimarães?

In the tenth century the Countess Mumadona Dias, after having become a widow, orders a monastery to be built in her estate of Vimaranes - now Guimarães. The constant attacks by the Moors and Normans leads to the need to build a fortress for guardianship and defense of the monks and the Christian community that lived around them. Thus appears the primitive Castle of Guimarães.
In the 12th century, with the formation of the Portucalense County, Count D. Henrique and D.Teresa came to Guimarães to have great works at the Castle in order to enlarge and strengthen it. Tradition tells us that it would have been inside the castle that the earls had settled there and probably D. Afonso Henriques was born there. Between the XIII and XV centuries several kings will contribute with works of improvement and restoration of the Castle.
Connected to heroic feats of the period of the foundation of nationality as the Battle of S.Mamede in 1128, reason why it is known as Castle of the Foundation or of S. Mamede, it served throughout its history of stage to several real conflicts. Lost that was its defensive function, the Castle enters a process of abandonment and gradual degradation until the XX century, when it is declared National Monument and restoration works are carried out.

Lo que la Gente Esta Diciendo

"Really nice tour. Guides were very informative, personable, funny, interesting. Was very well organized. Would highly recommend!"
"It’s a tough start to be there by 7am. Especially if you are based in Lagos as this is a 5am wake up call. But the tour is absolutely worth it. Being the first people on the Benagil beach makes it all worthwhile. The tour guides are friendly and their expertise made this a very safe and fun activity! "
"Absolutely fabulous! The tour guides were professional and friendly. The history knowledge they imparted along with the kayaking was awesome! Highly recommend! Best part of our stay in Lagos!"
"Notre guide, David, a été très attentionnée et nous a fait voir de façon très sécuritaire les plus belles grottes. Y aller tôt (9 hrs) est parfait, il n’y a pas encore trop de monde dans les grottes. Coup de cœur de notre visite en Algarve!"
"Sarah was following up our tour and was very accommodating, we will take a tour again with them"
"Big challenge for me and my husband but overcome it with a fantastic experience. Besides the delay to start the tour, gay helped us with tips to manage the kayak and showing the best places. I truly recommend this tour"
