Welcome to our hostel

It is said that King Afonso Henriques was born here and also that it was at Guimaraes that Portugal first became an independent nation, after the Battle of St Mamas in 1128. This town is also the birthplace of the modern and comfortable Youth Hostel which is right next to the historic centre of Guimaraes - considered World Heritage since 2001. Once you're all settled, climb the hill to the castle, then walk down toward the Dukes' Palace, and finally sit comfortably at one of the outdoor cafes in Largo da Oliveira.
