This is the very center of Guimaraes. Each time we go through this wonderful square it's always busy, and very often there is a sort of entertainment. The church is nice from outside and inside, and the arch outside is worth inspecting properly. At night...More

A great square, very nice and full of people. I definitely recommend it if you want to relax a bit and just enjoy the air in Guimarães.

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.

The Largo da Oliveira was the historic centre of the town and still oozes some of that history and charm. We sat at one of the outdoor cafes, next to the olive tree that gives the square and the Igreja (church) da Oliveira their names....More

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.
