Great praça

Great fountain and open space. Nice for wandering. We came here before dinner time and it was a bit chilly.

Not much to do expect for the fountains and some cafes. However, it is the start of a tour around the old city in a train om wheels. It costed us two euro p.p. and was a nice way of getting to know the area, especially in rain. Expect only portugese explanations

Nice open square that seems to conjoin the center of Braga. Nice to hang out and relax at one of the cafes or restaurants.

We stopped off in Braga without knowing too much about it only it had some cathedrals and churches! Parking underground was good. It was much bigger than we anticipated, but it was very lively with numerous shops, cafes and restaurants, interspersed with some beautiful buildings, fountains, and of course the churches.... The Square was lovely with great fountain and view... More

It was renovated and its the perfect place to start your visit of Braga. Braga is normally called the Portuguese Rome because of its many churches.

Most probably this is the center of the city. You will find here everything - modern building, old churches, arcades, a lot of restaurants. You can hardky miss it when you are in the city.

The square has a lovely atmosphere, restaurant tables line the sides of it and a fountain in the middle. A lovely place to sit and have a coffee or a meal and very central to the town.

It is, indeed, the place where you'll find more people hanging around, but you'll only need one minute to find out why! Between old and new you'll find anything in here, between old architecture, churches, restaurants, shops, you name it!

If you are visiting Braga and looking for historical architecture you should definitely stop by the "Praça da Republica". This is right in the middle of Braga, near other historical monuments, coffe shops, stores, etc. It is enjoyable during all the year. During the summer it is pleasant to have a coffee, drink or ice cream at night. During the... More
