There’s an inscription on one of the towers in the wall that says it quite clearly: “Portugal was born here.” Guimaraes has a place of honour in the history of Portugal, and is still one of its most beautiful cities. It’s just over 50 kilometres from Oporto, and if only to see its historic centre, which has been a World Heritage Site since 2001, it’s worth a visit.
