More points of interest

Guarda Cathedral

The Guarda Cathedral, commissioned during the reign of King João I, was only completed 150 years later, creating the perfect symbiosis between Gothic and Manueline. The interior has a magnificent chancel in Ançã stone, made by the Coimbra workshop of João de Ruão, and is the greatest work of erudite sculpture of the later Renaissance period.

Ferreiros Gate and Tower

The Ferreiros Tower, one of the most emblematic structures belonging to the city wall, probably dates back to the late 18th and early 14th centuries. Inside, there are three doors, one of which is in guillotine (one of the few that exist in Portugal) that guaranteed the safety of the town because they made the tower impregnable.

Luís de Camões Square

It is one of the most emblematic spaces of the city surrounded by a magnificent setting of buildings from different eras and styles: the gothic Cathedral of Guarda, the Balconies Building, the old Council House, the Póvoas Manor House and the Alarcão Manor House.

Old Jewish Neighbourhood

Located within the city walls, the Old Jewish Neighbourhood is considered one of the oldest in the country and even today you can still see marks of Judaism on the houses and pavement, as well as marks made after Christianisation - crosses on doorposts, to deter the inquisitors.

St Vincent Church

It is an 18th century Baroque temple with some of the unique characteristics of the militant church that emerged from the Council of Trent. Its interior has a remarkable set of historic tile panels that narrate episodes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.

Misericórdia Church

The Misericórdia Church, built around the 18th century, is the most important Baroque work in the city, which influenced the construction of several Baroque temples in the diocese. The portal is framed by two bell towers and supports an image of Our Lady of Mercy.

Chapel of Our Lady of the Mileu

Away from the urban centre, Chapel of Mileu is one of the oldest monuments in Guarda. Possibly with Visigothic roots, it is today an example of the transition period from the Romanesque to the Gothic. It stands out as an important point on the pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela.


This tower is the most relevant physical memory of the passage of kings in the city, as well as of the defence of the kingdom against Castile. The interior has three floors with wooden floors, each one with a different experience. On the ground floor there is an auditorium where a film is projected that promotes a virtual tour of the city. On the Livro Mágico floor (2nd floor) visitors can browse the History of Guarda in an interactive way, through the Carta de Foral and the cartoon "História da Guarda Oitocentos Anos de Cidade". On the top floor they can have a 360º perspective of fantastic landscapes.

Castro Tintinolho

Fortified settlement from the Iron Age to the Visigothic period. It has walls with three concentric levels and a defensive structure made by the natural and artificial topography. Inside, there are circular or square stone masonry houses.

Convent of São Francisco da Guarda

Legend has it that the origin of this convent was the passage of St. Francis of Assisi through Guarda in 1214. In architectural terms, it has a regular plan that includes a church on one side and a cloister in the middle, on the exterior façade it is possible to verify some traces of medieval architecture with the occasional presence of cannon gargoyles.

Municipal Museum of Guarda

The Museum of Guarda opened to the public in 1985 and its collection is made up of collections of archaeology, numismatics, sacred sculpture from the 13th to 18th centuries, sacred painting from the 16th to 18th centuries and armoury from the 17th to 20th centuries. There are also ceramics, photography, regional ethnography, painting and drawing from the end of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century.

With a privileged location, in the heart of the city of Guarda, it is therefore an emblematic building, with a strong symbolic identity in the urban surroundings, thus assuming preponderance in a vast commercial, cultural and leisure area.

Torre dos Ferreiros Panoramic Elevator

It allows you to climb the Ferreiros Tower and enjoy a 360-degree view of the city and its surroundings.

Caldeirão Waterfall

The Caldeirão Waterfall is an almost secret waterfall, now an attraction of the Passadiços do Mondego. The waters of this waterfall are released into a large well, the Caldeirão.

Môcho Real Viewpoint

Set on granite routes, it is located on the left bank of the Caldeirão Dam and from here we can see the escarpments of the Mondego Valley, the Caldeirão Waterfall - the largest formation from the erosive action of the water of the Garganta do Caldeirão, and the dam.

Porta D'el Rei

This is one of the oldest gates in the city, in stone and gothic style.

Porta da Erva

Gateway to the old Jewish quarter, marked by the experience of a 13th century Jewish community.

Pillory of Guarda

Pillory with a platform of three quadrangular steps, an octagonal shaft topped by a capital, with relief ornamentation that supports a cross.
