You can't even imagine the amount of things to see in Guarda. It's a city in the interior of Portugal, and its great architectural heritage is present in all areas of this Portuguese city. There are a thousand and one things to do in Guarda today. The city's Cathedral is a medieval temple which was restored in the 19th century. The city's castle, declared a National Monument, is another of the many places to visit in Guarda. It was constructed on a Roman-Lusitanian castro from the first century. Walking around the streets like Rua do Comércio is one of the main Guarda activities. There are plenty of small shops and stores to browse among. Plaza Luis Camoes is the nerve center of the city and is surrounded by low-rise houses, most with arcades.
