As everyone (or as many) know, the opening ceremony of Guimarães Capital of Culture in Europe took place on the 21st of January. After strolling up and the down the streets on that day and the day after we come across the evidence that in fact the sentence that is the signature of this campaign is true: "I have a part". And so it is. The cultural activities left the museums and concert halls, to come to the pastries and general shops in an amazing movement around this event. So for that reason when we travel to Guimarães now we feel that we as well are part of this event!
For that same reason and in honor of the several retailers on the streets of Guimarães, here are some of the images (ok, a lot) of the hearts, the symbol for this campaign, decorated by each of the stores where they were at.
A Gil Doce e a Gil Vicente são sem sombra de dúvida as melhores confeitarias na cidade. Gil Doce and Gil Vicente are two of the best pastry shops in town.
Eu faço parte!
I hope that you are now eager to visit this city, so hop on your car and enjoy Guimarães!
