Praça da Oliveira, Guimarães

Praça da Oliveira is an important and relevant square located in the historic center of Guimarães.

Guimarães is located in the north of Portugal, considered the city where Portugal has “born” at least is the place where the first Portuguese king has. So it’s an interesting place to visit and discover a lot of the Portuguese history and culture.

Now the city is preparing itself to be the European culture capital in 2012, so a lot of things are happening and changing nowadays.

The historic city center, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, and is where the Praça de Oliveira is located. It is one of the most important square in the city and the most emblematic one. It has this name due to the Olive tree (Oliveira) that is located there near of the important monument Padrão do Salado.

In the spring/Summer time it is an interesting place to have a drink or to eat something., specially if the weather is fine and the coffee tables are outside. A lot of time I had spent there. There is also a Hotel with room views for the square and it is also a nice place to live.
