It is a nice square with a fountain and several other attractions. It is very near the wall with the inscription "Aqui nasceu Portugal", so you can't really miss it.

Whereas this square is arguably the heart of the modern city, and is used for communal celebrations etc., it doesn’t have the beauty and intimacy of the smaller squares in the old part of Guimaraes.

Another small town square with a whole lot of history. Spend some time walking the area to see the churches and old buildings.

We walked down the hill from the train station in search of the center of town and we found it here! And then we found an excellent restaurant on the Largo for our lunch. And then we found our way to the old town just off this big square. We came back here to use the taxi stand to take a taxi back to the train station.

There are many squares and streets more interesting in Historic Center, but everybody looks for Largo do Toural to take a photo in the wall, where is written "Aqui nasceu Portugal".

There are many fine and grand buildings flanking this large and historic square, however a busy road runs run through it, and there is an absence of the outside cafes, bars and restaurants that are prevalent in the medieval town squares. The medieval town is just behind one of the sides of the square through Rua Dr Avelino Germano

The name of the square translates as "bull square". The fair of bulls and other large cattle known since the XVII century gave the name of the square. The fortress wall was located here earlier. A fragment of the wall with the inscription "Aqui nasceu Portugal" (Portugal was born here) is the visual dominant of the square. It's a metaphor. In what sense was Portugal born here? The first king Afonso Henriques was born in Guimaraes, not the country itself. Other landmarks are the fountain and the Church of San Pedro. Four star EMAJ Boutique Hotel is located opposite.

Main square of the city that is remembered for the inscription "Aqui nasceu Portugal" (here Portugal was born) reported on one of the palaces. You can also see many colorful buildings that are a sunny day can light up the entire square.

This was the cattle market back in the day! Definitely the most elegant one of those you'll eversee!
These days it is a big, open square with beautiful buildings all around it, perhaps the nicest and grandest being the Basilica San Pedo which is well worth calling into.

The square is quite beautiful because it's surrounded by old buildings and the fountain in the middle of it gives it quite a lovely look, but during christmas this place is magical. So many lights everywhere makes you feel you're in a proper Christmas town. My wife completely loved it.
