Guimarães (Portuguese pronunciation: [ɡimɐˈɾɐ̃jʃ]) is a northern Portuguese city located in the district of Braga. Guimarães is one of the country’s most important historical cities. Its historical center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, making it one of the largest tourist centers in the region.
The city is often referred to as the “birthplace of the Portuguese nationality”. This might be because the administrative seat of the County of Portugal was established there by Henry of Burgundy, or that it might also been the birthplace of Afonso I of Portugal, the first Portuguese king.
Nossa Senhora da Oliveira Church was founded in the 12th century by Afonso Henriques, the first king of portugal, as a thanksgiving for his victory in the battle of Ourique (1139), this church was restored and enlarged in the 14th century by King João I in order to fulfil a promise made before his victory at the battle of Aljubarrota (1385).
