Estadio D. Afonso Henriques


Estádio D. Afonso Henriques is a football stadium in Guimaraes, near Braga, Portugal. This is the home stadium of Victoria SC football club.

Its name comes from D. Afonso Henrique, the first King of Portugal and Guimaraes native and it was built in 1930. The stadium was renovated in 1965 and its inauguration after the renovation was at January 3, 1965, in a game where the Vitória SC beat CF Belenenses with 2-1. It was remodeled for the Euro2004 and now has about 30,000 seats. During the Euro 2004 it was the scene of Denmark-Italy and Italy-Bulgaria games. Most recently, it served as stage for two finals matches of the Euro2006 sub-21, Portugal-Germany and France-Germany.

Beside the stadium, tourists can see the Historic Centre of Guimaraes which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001. Here can be seen many Middle Age historical monuments because Guimaraes was the first capital of Portugal. The most impressive of them are a medieval castle with eight crenellated towers which was built in tenth century to protect the population from attacks of the Normands and the Moors and the Palace of Dukes of Braganca, which was built in the 15th century as a medieval palace.

The best way to explore the city and to reach the stadium is by foot because the city is pretty small and has a lot to offer, but buses also can be taken for Estadio D. Afonso Henriques.

Hotels available in the region are Hotel Toural, Hotel de Guimaraes and Hotel Fundador, rates starting from 45 Euros.
