The entrance to the church is free, so you should take the opportunity to get in if it's open. It has some pretty details inside and you can see the influence of different styles and that makes it special.

It is located on Largo de Oliveria. It is definitely an amazing church. Not just it is a part of the culture but architecture wise it is also amazing. Inside of the church is another story. You will be impressed for sure. You can spend lots of time inside by embracing serenity and peace. Recommended strongly!

A lovely medieval church at the side of the Largo da Oliveira (with the olive tree outside!
Built on the remains of a 10th century Benedictine monastery in the 12th century and with several subsequent additions.
Not as riotously decorated as many Portuguese churches, but beautiful and with a stunning high altar.

Our Viking River Cruise tour of Guimaraes did not take us here, although we did walk by and the place was mentioned. However, we decided to stop in and take a look during our free time. Once a former monastery, this historic Gothic church, consecrated in 1401, is located in Largo da Oliveria, a medieval square in the old town. There was no charge to visit.

Located in the Old Town area of Guimarares, you can’t miss this beautiful medieval church. Free to enter and cool inside, you feel very peaceful and calm. Hopefully your visit doesn’t coincide with a ‘tourist group’ piling in. The architecture within along with the furniture, paintings and ornaments capture the eye. Well worth a visit.

Once a former monastery, this historic Gothic church is located in Largo da Oliveria, a medieval square in the old town. It has seen numerous transformations in the past 1000 years! It was João I who restored the church in an act of gratitude to Our Lady for the 1342 victory at the Battle of Aljubarrota. The Manueline tower was a later addition, dating to about 1515. The church is a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the square. By the way, there is a beautiful legend of how the church and square were named. A small bookstore adjacent to the church will stamp your Credencial del Peregrino if you are walking the Camino. I was very excited to get my first stamp!

he name of the square and the church of Nossa Senhora da Oliveira is due to the olive tree (oliveira-olive tree), which grew in the square. The church is part of a former monastery founded in the tenth century by Countess Mumadona Dias. Not much remains from those times. The church carries elements of different eras and styles. So Gothic appeared in the architecture of the building in the XIV century. during the reconstruction carried out by the master Joao Garcia de Toledo on the orders of King Don Joan I in gratitude to the Holy Virgin for the victory over the unobtrusive Castilians in the battle of Alzhubarotta. The consecration of the church took place in 1401. The altar is entirely dedicated to the genealogy of the Virgin,from the Tree of Jesse to the Annunciation.
At the end of the XVII century. by order of King D. Pedro II, the main chapel was expanded, in the design of the vault of which you can see the royal coat of arms. The interior was covered with gilded carvings, the authorship of which is attributed to Pedro Alexandrino de Carvalho. The church has a strange feature. Usually burials take place either in the main building or in the church cemetery nearby. King John I buried his parents in the tower, dated 1513, during the reconstruction of the church.

Beautiful Church on Olive Square. Gorgeous hipoed wooden roof beams inside with old world style blocks on the walls.
Lovely iconography. Watch for the vivid painting of Pope John Paul II on the right as you walk in. Beautiful gilded altar in dim light. Sunlight was spilling in from the windows to the right on my visit, gave the whole place a warm glow.
It was such a peaceful church and perhaps the most beautiful one I saw in Guimaraes.

Said to have been founded in the 14th century after the Aljubarrota battle the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Oliveira stands its own historic meaningful ground in a discreet corner of the Largo da Oliveira with the Padrão do Salado standing right in front of it. It is worth being visited.
