Igreja de São Miguel do Castelo - Guimarães

Igreja de São Miguel do Castelo - Guimarães


The small church of S. Miguel do Castelo was built in the 13th century. However, according to tradition, this church would have been built in the 12th century by Count Dom Henrique (Henry of Burgundy), where he would have baptised his son, the 1st King of Portugal Dom Afonso Henriques.

Of Romanic style and reduced dimensions, this church reveals great simplicity in terms of decoration. Inside, under the floor of this church lie buried the great warriors of the nation’s founding period.

The church became severely run-down during the early 19th century, but was later restored in 1874 and 1940. In 1910, it was classified as a National Monument.
