Largo da Olivera is one of the 2 main squares in the old town. It has numerous shops, a church and an arched facade thru which you can reach the second square. There you will find numerous restaurants, cafes and bars along with shops as well. We were fortunate the day we were there as a large percussion band was marching and playing for the pleasure of locals and tourists alike!

It is said that this is place where used to be an olive tree that got cut down and to commemorate it, they built this structure. It is located in the center of the town right next to the church on the main square. Definitely, a must visit if you're in Guimarães and it is a free attraction.

I must say that I despair at previous reviews that suggest that an ancient square (and I assume the rest of the historic area) are somehow “weirdly out of place in the hustle and bustle of the city centre”. It’s called history - and there’s lots of in in Europe.

This fabulous square is one of the two adjoining main squares in the old town. It contains a splendid church and has many other impressive and attractive buildings. As one would expect it also contains plenty of cafes and restaurants and is a major part of the city’s social scene.

A must visit area if you are in Guimaraes.

A really lovely old square in the centre of Guimaraes with the most beautiful buildings surrounding it, the lovely Igreja (Church) da Oliveira to one side and in the square itself the eponymous olive tree and a small open Gothic chapel.
Plenty of places to eat and drink.

It was very old and interesting but seemed weirdly out of place in the hustle and bustle of the city center and all the restaurants. I loved the architecture of it though.

I like old things, so I enjoyed the general area. I will go back again and spend more time. There are similar Largos throughout Portugal.

Very curious medieval religious structure in a pretty square and in front of the big church. Lots of cafes all around. Very picturesque.

Beautiful historic square with a lovely church and surrounded by many cafes! Lots of winding narrow streets go off of it and very fun to explore!

The setting up of this cross apparently led to a nearby withering tree to flourish anew instantly. This cross now stands in an area full of bars and taverns.

This medieval square sits in the middle of old Guimarães, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Lots of activity here, with cafes, shops and of course the prerequisite church. It’s a great place to rest your weary legs and soak up the atmosphere! Look for the olive tree.
