Vieira Guimarães Building

Vieira Guimarães Building (Casa Vieira Guimarães) is located in the centre of the City of Tomar in Portugal and may have been built in 1922. This was the residence of the historian Vieira Guimarães, who after his death left the house to the local council with the right of his wife to live there until her death. The decorative motifs of the windows are linked to the Manueline style revivalism of the 19th Century in Portugal. This is a two storey house and right now in 2011 it is the organizational centre of the Festival of the Trays (Festa dos Tabuleiros) held between 2 and 11 of July 2011.
