A haven for wandering laptop totting souls and home to many industrious individuals, Portugal is a proverbial draw card for remote workers, freelancers, startups and entrepreneurs for its incredible lifestyle. The number of coworking spaces in the country increases each year, as the demand for them grows. Portugal has an amazing tech network that is underpinned by a range of support, incubators and accelerators.
Guimaraes sits in the north of this country known for its wine and spicy sausage, "chourico". Whilst the rest of the country has its signature salt cod fish cakes, Guimaraes is known for its confectionery. It was here that a female monastery put a stamp on the regional gastronomy with its "Tortas de Guimaraes" and "Toucinho do ceu". The so-called "meat cake" which is a pseudo bread in a pizza shape served with pig, sardines or other toppings was created in this town. Maintaining this entrepreneurial spirit, the city is now seeing coworking spaces springing up in its streets.
An historic town with a 10th Century castle and a palace built like a French chateau, Guimaraes' Old Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Often referred to as the "birthplace of the Portuguese nationality" or "the cradle city", as it is believed that Portugal's first King "Afonso Henriques" was born here, it is also where the Battle of Sao Mamede was fought that created the foundation of the Kingdom of Portugal. From the ancient to the new, Guimaraes is a city to linger in, to live in and now with coworking venues, to work in.
