Guimarães


Guimarães is one of the most important cities in Portugal, historicaly speaking.
This man is the Founder of our Nation. It's called D. Afonso Henriques and was our first King. Guimarães was his birth place and is also the birth place of Portugal.


Here is the Church where he was baptized.
This people you can see here are my girls and husband.


The Castle.




Look at the views from the Castle.

And the streets are so beautiful!
