Other things to note
Guimarães is located at aprox. a 40 min. car ride from Porto Airport.

It is a city whose roots date back to the 10th century, one of the oldest in Portugal. Known as the "Cradle of Portugal", its Historic Center was classified by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage site in 2001. It was also European Capital of Culture in 2012 and European Capital of Sport in 2013.

Besides its main attractions [Castelo de Guimarães, Paço dos Duques de Bragança, Largo da Oliveira, Praça de S. Tiago, Montanha e Santuário da Penha, Plataforma das Artes e da Criatividade, Centro Cultural Vila Flor, etc.] it's location provides the perfect HQ to visit other important cities in North Portugal, such as Porto [60 km], Braga [15 km] or Viana do Castelo [60 km].

You may also visit the National Park of Peneda and Gerês [50 km] or the Douro Region [70 km].

Wonderful beaches and surfing sites may be found within a 40 min. ride in Esposende, Viana do Castelo and Matosinhos.

> Since 2015 Portugal has more strictly enforced a long-standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non-Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. This law has been brought into force in Portugal and most other EU countries at some point since the gradual implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement that aims to stop human trafficking and other illegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and the recent Alojamento Local law in Portugal that has brought this rule into sharper focus. For this reason, all guests of every reservation need to show their passports, so we can collect the required information.
