The Penha hill (654m) is located above the historical city of Guimarães.
Guimarães is considered to be the birthplace of Portugal. It was near this place in 1128 that the troops of the County pf Portugal led by Count Afonso, defeated the Galician army. Thereby de facto gaining independence from the Kingdom of Galicia & Leon. Count Afonso later became the first King of Portugal and Guimarães the first capital of the new country.
Today the city is a booming cultural hotspot, being the cultural capital of Europe in 2012. It has many important art and history museums. The city is inscribed as a world heritage site for its many monuments that illustrate how Guimarães evolved from a small medieval town towards the modern city of today. Also not to miss is the 12th century castle.
