HISTORY Our Foundation
Portugal was born here - a long-lasting memory
In the Latito Hill there are three National Monuments: the Guimarães Castle, the Church of S. Miguel and the Ducal Palace. Come visit us. We await you!
It was built by the 8th Count of Barcelos (and, later, 1st Duke of Bragança), D. Afonso, natural son of King D. João I.
Recognized as the castle that, par excellence, is most connected to the origins of Portugal.
Church of S. Miguel do Castelo
The Romanesque Church of S. Miguel do Castelo is traditionally associated with the baptism of King Afonso Henriques.
